About

The 39 acres of Queens Botanical Garden are a lush oasis amidst the city's expanses of asphalt and concrete. Inside its themed gardens, roses burst with colorful blooms, native grasses wave in the breeze, and a Fragrance Walk fills with floral aromas. Currently, the garden features more than 25 living exhibits that showcase native plant species, habitats ranging from woodlands to meadows, and even sustainable landscaping practices, such as methods for naturally controlling storm water runoff. Even the buildings embrace the concept of sustainability, featuring a rainwater collection roof, a geothermal and cooling system, green roof, recycled steel columns, energy-efficient windows, and furniture made from renewable bamboo.

For a serene escape from city life, the botanical garden encourages visitors to walk along the trails and enjoy the displays, which shift depending on the season. This environment is meant to be touched as well as seen. Throughout the year they host events such as seasonal festivals along with educational programs that give school groups an opportunity to learn about the surrounding environment.
