New York Botanical Garden
This lush garden, neighbor to the Bronx Zoo, is a wonderland for everything that grows out of the ground. Featuring more than a million plants on 250 acres, the Botanical Garden is a place for study and research as well as enchantment and exploration. Take a seasonal walk to see what's in bloom or visit the Home Gardening Center to get tips for your own patch of earth.
