During our weekday visit it was quiet and peaceful with a few school groups of children, a nice walk but not much to see. The Japanese garden is serene and the conservatory has some interesting plants. Next... More

There was a nice calm around the garden. Nice place to relax with your thoughts, even with no flowers as yet it's still a nice place to visit.

Bring nice walking shoes or flats that are comfy since you will do lots of walking. I like the idea to draw your favorite flowers and plants. So much fun!

The Brooklyn Botanic Gardens is a little piece of tranquility and escape. It is worth visiting at any time of year, but especially in spring for the cherry blossom festival. There are lots of events around the year and lots of different areas to visit - the Japanese garden is a special favorite.

Rain or shine. Snow or sun. This place offers beauty, style and education. The shop is great, the food at the cafe ok, but the natural beauty and design elements of the Garden are what make it so special. Free tours on weekends.

This is one of the best times of the year to visit in order to take full advantage of the changing colors of the leaves. Both breathtaking and beautiful, you can really enjoy all the gardens have to offer without dealing with the major crowds often seen other times of the year.

I attended a beautiful wedding at the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens and the setting outside for the ceremony was gorgeous. Thankfullly, it wasnt too cold. The reception was equally as beautiful and I could tell that the staff or coordinators were able to provide a stress free day to the beautiful bride and handsome groom

The Botanic Gardens has some of the most beautiful man made plants and flower arrangements in the city.I use to go many years ago and have developed some extreme pollen allergies.So I can only enjoy succulents.
