Although much smaller than the Brooklyn and New York Botanical Gardens, the 39-acre Queens Botanical Garden is definitely worth a visit. It’s less crowded than the bigger gardens and offers the same varied collection of trees and flowers, only on a smaller scale. Depending on the season you visit, there is always something in bloom, from the Cherry Circle, Fragrance Walk and Perennial Garden to the Queens Rose Garden. A Victorian-style garden with a gazebo, footbridge and stream is available for weddings. In September 2007, the Garden opened the new Visitor and Administration Centermaking it the most advanced green building in NYCalong with a renovated entry plaza and a beautiful fountain at the Main Street gate.
