Did you know that hip and happening Brooklyn is home to a delightful garden of meadows, flower beds, and ponds that covers some 50 acres?
The star of the show is the Japanese garden, complete with a water garden, teahouse and shrine. There’s more oriental interest in the conservatory where, as well as rare rainforest trees, you can see one of America’s best collections of bonsai all year round.
Seasonal highlights worth catching are Japanese cherry blossom, an enormous number of roses in bloom, and Magnolia Plaza, where the creamy flowers of 80 trees look spectacular against the backdrop of daffodils on Boulder Hill.
