The Brooklyn Botanic Gardens is a delight. We have visited many times over the years, and every member of our group has found something they enjoy. From spring to fall, the Garden is home to a dazzling array of flowering plants. Fall brings a blaze of color as the leaves change, and the blossoming cherry trees of spring are a... More

Visited in july so it was HOT...but there was plenty of shade to be had throughout the gardens, which are very well laid out and well-maintained. Lots of good exhibition spaces...and apparently a great location for Pokemon hunters! Definitely worth a visit for some quiet peaceful time.

I love the Japanese garden, the shakespeare herb garden, the roses during spring. Wonderful indoor gardens with varying ecosphere, rain forest, desert, etc.... Marvel at the bonsai....

Great place to check out for a few hours. Grounds are alway immaculate and never crowded. Love the place so much, my wife and I got married here. And they have a variety of classes, for example, landscape watercolor painting. Do yourself a favor and go visit this gem! Free / no admission fee on Saturday mornings.

Beautiful garden, very large variety of plants from all over the world. Very clean & Very relaxing. Great restaurant Saul for lunch. Lots of planes flying over us, just to remind where we are. Went to the Brooklyn museum next door, it was getting way to hot ! Took the subway and felt very safe.

This is my oasis in the middle of Brooklyn. I especially love the Japanese Garden. I love to go in any season - winter, spring, summer or fall. It's a great place for a family outing, a couples' walk or solitude.
