“How nice”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Was there for the cherry blossom festival. My suggestion take public transit parking in the area is awful. But alas the Garden itself is beautiful with vast expanses and a great experience for all. Bring a picnic, a blanket, your bug spray, your love for the great outdoors, some comfortable and steady walking shoes, and spend a day in Brooklyn's own oasis!

“Peaceful place in Brooklyn”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

I have been going to this garden my whole life. It is so well kept and beautiful. There are little nooks to explore. It is an excellent place for a romantic stroll or a fun place to take the kids. There are the Japanese blossoms in the spring. There are festivals... As a child, the privaledge to walk the park was free, you can still go free on Tuesdays and Saturdays before noon.

“Garden and Conservatory in Brooklyn”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

I love visiting gardens, and Brooklyn Botanic Garden is one of the best. They were planting out tulips when we were there, and the cafe was still outdoors.
