A major part of the Brooklyn Botanic Garden's South Garden Revitalization project, this awesome garden, geared toward kids ages 1 to 12, recently reopened after an extensive renovation. Designed by Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates, the space is now a one-acre park where kids can explore, play, do scientific investigations and discover different eco systems and habitats found in the greater New York area, from woodlands to meadows to marshes.
