Fodor's Review

A gem even among New York’s superlative botanical sites, this verdant 52-acre oasis charms with its array of “gardens within the garden”—an idyllic Japanese Hill-and-Pond garden, a nearly century-old rose garden, and a Shakespeare garden. The Japanese cherry arbor turns into a breathtaking cloud of pink every spring, and the Sakura Matsuri two-day cherry blossom festival is the largest public-garden event in America. There are entrances on Eastern Parkway, next to the subway station, and on Washington Avenue, behind the Brooklyn Museum. Free garden tours meet at the front gate weekends at 1 pm.
