Great relaxing in the park.

I love their free hours. The park is large enough and informed for all ages. Great for spring or fall. I'm not really a summer person, but it is nice during summer too. And winter... read more

A place for local residents to learn gardening, recycling & composting. There is absolutely nothing of beauty to see here. The gardens are decrepit, tired and ill maintained.

I love their free hours. The park is large enough and informed for all ages. Great for spring or fall. I'm not really a summer person, but it is nice during summer too. And winter is always free to visit the park, which is nice. They have free hours all 4 season, but you'll have to make sure what day... More

A couple of years ago some childhood friends took me to hear LIVE Egyptian music and it was so amazing. So if you check online maybe you can find some good music here!!

If you ve been to other botanical gardens in NY, this one is smaller in comparison. but if you don't like to deal with crowds and noisy children running around. You might be able to find peace and quite here. Go early and have lunch in flushing :)

If you want to escape the hustle and bustle of downtown Flushing, it's worth your while to take a walk down Main Street to visit the Queens Botanical Gardens where you'll find the best that nature has to offer--lush shade trees, winding paths & benches, fragrant flowers and herb gardens lovingly tended to. It's, by far, the most unspoiled acreage... More

A pleasant and restive day in a garden of delight. Not very big but good for a family outing and meditation. Comfortable seating areas but placed too far apart

Lovely day with family. Nice free guided tour. A grateful way to relax from the hectic NYC. If you are disabled you can take a tram to get around the Gardens.

We went to the Botanical Gardens looking forward to an relaxing time and we weren't disappointed. The park had many varied varieties and were set across the area in a very nice setting. However, that being said...the grounds themselves seem a little unkempt, I could see if the weather was bad for a few days, but this was a stellar... More

We went here with our 86 year old mother. The paths are paved and even (perfect for strollers too)! Several people were doing Tai Chi as a group, others individually. A wide variety of plants, something always in bloom! Many different habitats.
