Immerse yourself in 52 acres of year-round beauty at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. Home to over 18,000 types of plants, the Garden's diverse collection celebrates nature's ever-changing spectacle with a glorious succession of color, texture and atmosphere through the seasons—from the very first cherry blossoms heralding spring's arrival to autumn's blaze of foliage and the poetic silhouettes of winter trees.
A verdant sanctuary amid the bustle of the city, Brooklyn Botanic Garden is a lush and intimate retreat to connect with and become inspired by the wonders of the natural world. Visit www.bbg.org to discover what's blooming now.

Bitterly disappointed that the free admission for Tuesdays and Saturday mornings has been killed. The BBG was a haven for local Crown Heights kids and adults who cannot afford to pay $15 per person to learn first hand about the beauty, tranquility, and botanic science of nature in all its diverse splendor. Now the BBG has become a haven for the elite to escape those "sort" of people. All of my friends are just as shocked and dismayed by these changes, too.
Daffodil Hill is singing a different tune with all these trumpet-shaped blooms and Garden After Hours gives you more time with the flowers. 🎺🌼🍃🏞🌳 bbg.org/afterhours
