The Bonsai trees are not to miss; many are over 100 years old and fascinating to see. Kids will love them! Walking through the garden is calming and beautiful.

We enjoyed strolling through this garden. The section with edible plants was both informative and visually pleasing. The indoor greenhouse that explores different climates rivals the National Botanic Gardens in D.C.

Many beautiful garden environments. The Japanese garden is unique and worth a stroll through the winding paths. The green houses have many exotic garden environments.

I hadn’t been here in 40 years and it was better than ever. The paths are lovely and the exhibits were great for young & old. Visit the children’s garden & enjoy the conservatories.

There is paid parking adjacent to BBG off Washington Avenue. Parking is generally a problem on weekdays, but can be on weekends. I think that the best bet in coming from Pa. is over the Verrazano Bridge and onto the... More
