This place is beautiful, wonderful trees, flowers, and plants with nice wandering paths to stroll through. We love the rose garden, Japanese koi pond, and children's garden- newly reopened I think. Great place to just relax and take in natures beauty. I always found the security personnel to be very friendly and love the gifts shop also!

I see a lot of complaints about the "park" , well one its not a park it's a museum of living collections the rules are in the damn front no eating, and no damn blankets wtf is so hard to understand this place is beautiful, it's not a place to "have fun" it's a place to reflect on natures beauty, this place is amazing the guards are great, the people are great and my time there was amazing

Beautiful place, nasty personnel. They are like meter maids- swooping down on you for spreading a picnic blanket, eating food, bringing a kiddie trike, rolling a softball or doing pretty much anything besides sitting in the lotus position. It sucks all the joy from this otherwise beautiful place

This is NOT a park, it's is a living museum of plant specimens from all over the world. So of course you can't play a game of softball or have your child running around crushing the blue grass species from the Midwest or plucking flowers from that rare plant only found in Australia. Get a grip people, just because it's green doesn't mean it is yours to conquer and destroy for your private pleasure! Again, it's a garden museum NOT a park!

Brooklyn Rockefeller Center prices at New Brooklyn Botanical Coffee Shop - Absolutely scandalous. I am a member since 5 years. I really enjoyed the old coffee shop menu. Amazing selection and variaty of organic foods and delicious 7 grains bread. Khan and his team have made a fantastic job since 1984.................... Today I have been at the coffee shop... I wanted to enjoy my favorite Chili Con Carne... One of the best in Brooklyn.... Not on the menu anymore !!! I asked for a quiche... Not on the menu anymore !!! A piece of bread... In your dreams !!! A hot dog ???? 8 dollars..... SERIOUSLY ? A croissant 6 dollars ???? (but you know the prices) Are you selecting now your customers by they yearly income ??? Think about families with kids... The bill they would have to pay for lunch could feed all of them for a couple of days. This is absolutely scandalous. Why changing something that was great ?????!!!!!!!! This cannot remain like this. I will invite all my friends members to react to this unacceptable situation and will also invite the local press for them to also publish their opinion. Thank You

Visited BBG for the first time during the Sakura Matsuri for the cherry blossom festival. More than half the trees were bare and there was no organization at all. The line to purchase tickets was somewhat organized until you reached the ticket window where all hell breaks loose. It was poorly organized and poorly planned since they ran out of programs within the gardens and you had to leave and fight the crowds to receive one outside the front gate. I always heard these botanical gardens were better than the NY botanical garden but I have yet to see how.

"If your idea of fun is being hassled and moved along by people in paramilitary uniform then this is the place for you." - totally agree. The guards who picking on everybody who is trying to enjoy the sun on the grass or who brought their own snack to garden's cafe, are totally killing the joy of walking around this park. This is not a joyful place to me.

Amazing place! I love the Steinhardt conservatory with the different biomes, the Japanese pond/turtles/Coy fish, and of course the cherry blossom trees. Amazing place to relax. Definitely recommended
