About Brooklyn Botanic Garden
Brooklyn Botanic Garden is a unique botanical garden in the middle of New York's urban jungle. With the mission to reconnect people with nature and inspire appreciation for the world of plants, Brooklyn Botanic Garden invites visitors of all ages to enjoy their rich plant collection. Here are gardens and conservatories that definately shouldn't be missed:
- The Shelby White and Leon Levy Water Garden: A small wetland with meandering paths, a babbling brook, and a tranquil pond surrounded by trees, shrubs, and ferns thriving at the water's edge. Don't miss several varieties of Hibiscus flowering from late July through September.
- Shakespeare Garden: An English cottage-style garden with 80 kinds of plants mentioned in the works of William Shakespeare. In the spring, the garden turns into a colorful display of daffodils, fritillaries, squill, dwarf irises, and tulips.
- Japanese Hill-and-Pond Garden: One of the oldest and most visited Japanese-inspired gardens outside Japan, the Japanese Hill-and-Pond Garden is known for both its plants, such as Japanese maple and Japanese irises, and its architectural elements—wooden bridges, stone lanterns, a viewing pavilion, a Shinto shrine, and a wooden torii gate.
Beyond an awe-inspiring collection of plants, Brooklyn Botanic Garden is also a community dedicated to conservation. That's why they offer different educational programs and activities for adults, children, families, and schools. They also reach out to all plant-lovers out there with their plant and garden blogs and gardening how-to articles.
