Brooklyn Botanic Garden Tours

Since 1910 this Prospect neighborhood staple has been attracting as many Brooklyn borough residents in search of a quiet, peaceful respite as it has travelers looking to explore the best New York flora and breathtaking flower displays this side of the Hudson. From a Zen-inspired bonsai museum to an aquatic plant house, Japanese garden and stunning reflecting pool filled with giant water lilies, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden is a Mecca for natural beauty and a perfect urban escape.

From late March to mid-May travelers can catch orchards of stunning pink cherry blossoms in bloom and during summer months the Cranford Rose Garden—home to more than 5,000 species of this fragrant flower—comes to life. Both the Native Flora Garden, filled with woodland plants native to the area surrounding New York City, and the Shakespeare Garden offer travelers a picture-perfect escape from the Big Apple.
