Brooklyn Botanic Garden highlights
- Despite being adjacent to the “Concrete Jungle”, Brooklyn is surprisingly green, and the Brooklyn Botanic Garden is the ideal place to spend time relaxing.
- The garden is located right next to the Brooklyn Museum, making for a full day’s worth of activities. 52 acres of world-famous botanical gems will leave you in awe as you walk around the soothing Japanese Hill-and-Pond Garden and the Cherry Esplanade, with its stunning blooms.
- The reflective nature of water is a central theme in this garden, as you’ll notice when exploring the Lily Pool Terrace, home to almost one hundred different kinds of water lilies. Also featured at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden is the Steinhardt Conservatory, which boasts a huge collection of exotic plants, and the C.V. Star Bonsai Museum. Even if the weather is a bit chilly, this garden is worth a trip, as it contains plants and exhibits that thrive in all climates and seasons.
