About the Brooklyn Botanic Garden
Founded in 1910, Brooklyn Botanic Garden is a tranquil, 52-acre urban oasis featuring more than 10,000 different kinds of plants from around the world. Situated in the heart of Brooklyn, the Garden hosts more than 700,000 visitors annually and inspires them to discover that plants are essential to life.
Called the "premier horticultural attraction in the region," by The New York Times, the Garden is made up of many exquisite and historic specialty gardens, including the Japanese-Hill-and-Pond-Garden, the Children's Garden, the Native Flora Garden, the Cranford Rose Garden, the Alice Recknagel Ireys Fragrance Garden, and the Steinhardt Conservatory.

Along with displaying a world-class collection of plants, Brooklyn Botanic Garden is also deeply committed to education, community outreach, and scientific research, and to being a trusted source of information about horticulture, botany, and the importance of conserving plants and protecting the environment.
