Brooklyn Botanic Gardens
BROOKLYN. Occupying 52-acres of manicured land adjacent to Prospect Park, Brooklyn’s Botanic Gardens are a little bit of country in the middle of the city. Over 12,000 different plant and flower types are represented. The Children’s Garden was the first of its kind in the world, and the extraordinary garden for the blind features hundreds of beautifully-scented and textured plants. The Gardens delight almost one million visitors per year.
