“A bit small!”
Reviewed 29 July 2013 via mobile

It's just like any other botanical garden but a smaller. If you like visiting botanical gardens, it's a nice place but, I wouldn't travel far to go. I live not too far away. For me it was refreshing.

“Small but very pretty botanical gardens”
Reviewed 8 July 2013

The Queens Botanical Gardens was revamped several years ago and it now looks more beautiful than ever before. It still remains somewhat small when compared to the botanical gardens in the Bronx and Brooklyn, but if you live nearby, you must visit this place at least once a year. Don't miss the lovely fountain and pool close to the front. The garden is free on Sundays between 4 and 6pm and Wednesdays between 3 and 6pm. Street parking is usually quite easy to find nearby.

“Relaxing and great design. ( Roof Garden)”
Reviewed 19 June 2013

A must for the traveler, if you go here you will find the biggest chinese- corean community in New York City. and the best kept secret garden in the city. Every morning (8-10) taichi qigong sessions open to the public. With 4 dollars regular entrance or 2 dolars seniors/students you will have a different and interesting experience.
