We went when the tulips were in full bloom and it was truly a sight to behold. Lovely. The roses weren't blooming yet, so that was a bummer, but still worth the trip. There are a lot of exhibits that are worth checking out, especially...More

A beautiful location especially in the spring when the cherry blossoms are in full bloom. Getting to the gardens is an easy subway ride from Manhattan and other parts of Brooklyn. We’ve gone before in a car and found the parking to be overpriced where...More

This was my first visit to the Brooklyn Botanical Garden. I was there at a wonderful time because they had, according to the web page, 103 cherry trees in bloom. And they also had many peonies in bloom and wisteria and so many more plants....More

We hit it just right...the tree peonies were in full bloom. They were stunning. Lilacs were a bit past their prime. The garden also has a large rose garden, where the roses were just beginning to bloom. The azaleas and wisteria were also at their...More

Attended a wedding at the Botanic Garden. The ceremony under the blooming cherry trees was ethereal. The slightest breeze would cause blossoms to rain down upon the wedding party. The reception was beautiful and the guests got to experience different "world regions" during the cocktail...More

Often here during the summer months, I love the serenity of the quiet lawns and enclosed flower gardens. The only bad thing about coming out here is that the botanical garden is so far away from Manhattan or Western Queens by public transit

Growing up in Bklyn, this is it. It's a beautifully kept garden. You can find peace and sanctuary in midst of a hustling city. Beautiful cherry blossom, tulips, wisteria and lilacs. It has one of the oldest bonsai around. amazing! Finding parking is tough if...More

I visited the Brooklyn Botanic Garden last Saturday and Sunday (05/05 - 05/06). I was in love with the cherry blossoms. I got there around 3:00pm on Saturday and it was packed, so I went back on Sunday around 10:15am. There were lots of people...More

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
