Unfortunately we went late spring and missed most of the flowers in bloom. However the grounds were great and we looking forward to going back at a different time of year.

A beautiful garden, currently under lots of construction. We are members and come here often to see the changing seasons in plants. Their classes are great!

This place rivals the one in the Bronx, and is usually overlooked and underrated, which is good because it means more locals frequent this one.

As many times as we visit the garden, We have no will to leave it. Everything is beautiful and idilic. Just a contrast with roaring Flatbush Avenue & Eastern Parkway next to it.

One does not believe that you are in the heart of Brooklyn. It is an oasis of beauty. Everything is blooming even when not in typical blooming season. A must see!

I think yes. There are greenhouses at least, with Banzai (small Japanese trees, which fit on desk) and with tropical and desert plants. I've just visited it today.
