This is a wonder place to visit any time of year. The people who work there have always seemed warm and friendly. It's a great escape from city life.

“Just love these gardens both inside and out.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

Because of the constant blloms all spring summer and fall, its a fine visit most any season. In fact with the green houses, it's the place to go anytime. It's close proximity to the Brooklyn Museum makes this part of a double dip of a day.

“Beautiful Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013

Lovely year round. There are beautiful things to see all year. They have events year round for everyone in the family including classes. You don't feel like you are in NYC. Nice escape. Very easy to get to. Right near the 2 and 3 subways.

Too bad I was there in January and not for the blossoms. But even in winter the botanic garden is beautiful!

“A Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

Nestled in the midst of sprawling Brooklyn, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden is a real treasure. Check out the brand new "green" visitors center and the most authentic Japanese garden this side of the Pacific. Beautiful in every season, this garden is always a pleasure. Dress for the weather and be ready to roam.
