I Love Walking Through The Garden And Soaking It All In... It Is Really Peaceful and Relaxing. Love seeing All The Plants and Trees. And Even That One Spot Where Flatbush And Brooklyn Once Met. Great For Families, Couples, Or Some Quiet Time Alone... Simply...More

I love the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. It is a great place for family, friends, children, or solitude. It’s great in April during the Cherry Blossom festival. And great in June when the roses are in bloom. It’s a great place to visit anytime.

When you enter the Brooklyn Botanic Garden the pathways are a destination themselves. The flowers that surround the pathways and the numerous different gardens that contain exotic flowers from all over the world is breathtaking.

Can’t think of a better date to have. We spent the whole day together. Best thing to do with a special someone. I suggest taking a hat and wearing sunscreen. We took a huge water bottle to share but had to refill it twice. Plenty...More
