New York Botanical Garden :: Bronx, New York
There is an endless supply of beauty within the New York Botanical Garden. It is home to over 250 acres of uniquely decorated, majestic landscapes each having its own theme. The New York Botanical Garden is the largest botanical garden in the United States. On the premises are 50 acres of native forest and 50 well maintained gardens: each garden is a separate work of living art some with stunning displays, many of which were created by famous architects and designers some dating back as old as the 1840’s. Each season at the Botanical Garden, brings new kinds of blooms on a variety of plants and trees. There’s always something to see and experience that you probably won’t get through the whole 250 acres in one day.
Other areas of interest are the Everett Children’s Adventure Garden, the Nancy Bryan Luce Herb Garden, and my personal favorite: the Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden which has over 3,000 rose plants each carrying its own fragrance, color – beauty. The New York Botanical Garden is open almost all year round excluding Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Mondays. Ticket prices are quite affordable so you can bring the whole family without hurting your budget. I recommend visiting New York Botanical Garden’s website before taking your trip so you can plan what exhibitions and landscapes you want to see as you may not be able to get it all done in one day.
