Was really disappointed with these gardens, thought they would have planted something to show some sort of colour in the winter. Everything was dull and dead. Don’t make a special trip here in the winter!

Beautiful, perfect size for an afternoon. Great restaurant and gift shop. Walk around the grounds. If you are there in the spring the cherry blossoms are spectacular

A beautiful refuge next to the wonderful Brooklyn Museum. Worth a visit to walk among hidden acres of greenery and trees and flowers in bloom. Indoor exhibits of the desert environments is very special. Go before 11 on weekends and there is free admission.

On the weekends is always busy, but if you go Saturday morning right after they open, is not that busy/crowded & the best part? admission is free. Don't forget to take your camera, bring a water bottle, & wear comfortable... More
