Brooklyn Botanical Garden - Review
Brooklyn Botanical Garden is probably the most famous and most beautiful garden in the New York City. It’s a nice place to get-away from city life. The Garden has more than 200 Cherry trees of forty-two Asian species and cultivated varieties, making it one of the foremost cherry-viewing sites outside Japan. It is situated on 52-acres in the heart of Brooklyn. Thirteen gardens, six flower collections, and a conservatory with multiple environments to explore welcome over 7,25,000 visitors annually.
The greenhouses are beautifully arranged and take the visitors on little journey’s through the Rainforest and the Dessert. Every spring, crowds descend on the space for the Sakura Matsuri Festival, during which many trees bloom along the Cherry Esplanad.
Other popular festivals are Chile Pepper Festival: August and Ghouls & Gourds – October. You can also see Shakespeare Garden, Magnolia Plaza, Lily Pool Terrace, Steinhardt Conservatory, Cranford Rose Garden features 5,000 bushes of 1,200 varieties of America's favorite flower, and several other gardens also delight the senses, including a rock garden, daffodil hill and herb garden.

Brooklyn Botanical Garden, New York City Reviews
Was visiting Brooklyn over the Fourth of July and decided the garden would be cool to check out. Worked out too since it's free admission on Tuesdays. Looking at their even schedule it seems like there's always something going on in the gardens. On this particular day, however, we just took a stroll through the different gardens with our two year old. The visit was a massive success and she slept the rest of the car ride home. Highlight for me was the Japanese garden, while our daughter loved all the roses.
Beautiful Grounds & Gardens. Inexpensive admission: adults $15; children under 12 are Free! You can go out and return to the grounds (the same day) if you get your hand stamped when leaving. There was a lot of construction happening so we couldn't get through everything. I love the Rose Gardens🌹 Sprinklers were fun to run through. (It was a hot day).
My most favorite place in Brooklyn. If I could live here I would. The sights and smells and quiet make this place so special. I am thankful every time I get to visit here. It is incredible the visions people have had in creating these places. The Weeping Willow tree is permanently engrained in my vision. So many summer evenings spent here learning and laughing.
I think it was quite serene. Me and my girl got there expecting to see the pink flowers but they only bloom in late April / Early May, so seeing that we visited in late September they were very much not in bloom. When we were purchasing the tickets at the gate the attendant was quite unwelcoming to us but we walked around and found a few beautiful areas to take pictures. It's a quite and serene place. I wouldn't call it a must see and it's not super big either, for some that would mean you won't get lost; for others that would mean it's not really worth more than one visit. Overall it was ok
Lugar lindo, muito especial e muito bem cuidado! Deveria estar no roteiro de todo mundo que visita NY, mais especificamente o Brooklyn. É um passeio super barato (quando comparado com outros mais turísticos) mas extremamente relaxante e educativo. Amei passar a tarde de Sábado nesse lugar. É muito bom para levar as crianças também.
