Inside Scoop: Brooklyn Botanic Garden

Brooklyn Botanic Garden is the perfect escape from New York when you need to experience the beauty of nature at its finest. This pristine garden was founded in 1910, with 39 acres. In the past century, it has grown to include a Japanese Garden, Rock Garden, Rose Garden, Herb Garden, Lily Pool Terrace, and Shakespeare Garden, among many others.

The Cherry Esplanade is one of Brooklyn Botanic Garden's most popular spots, where the Sakura Matsuri weekend festival is celebrated during the spring, inviting visitors to experience Japanese culture through dance, food, arts, and music. A brand-new visitor's center shows off architectural innovation, with a clever green integration of the garden and its pathways.
