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, near the Prospect Park B, Q, S subway station, and on Washington Avenue, behind the Brooklyn Museum. A variety of free garden tours are available with admission; check the website for seasonal details.
