Children's Garden in the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens


The Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, located in Brooklyn, New York, has been helping children learn all about growing flowers, vegetables, and herbs since 1914.  Kids ages 2-7 can plant their own crops in late spring and then come back to harvest them in the fall.

The Discovery Garden allows kids to touch and smell plants and experience different habitats:  woodland, meadow, farm, and wetland.  Kids can also dig up worms at the Nature Center.  What kid doesn't like that?

The gardens are open year round.  Admission for adults is $10.00.  Children under 12 are admitted free.

  3. Hello human, Sherry,

    That's wonderful to get the children involved at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens. That looks like another great place for me to go sniff around. Um, probably not...

    Pawsitive wishes,

    1. I'm sure you'd love to sniff around there, but you might have some trouble convincing the humans to let you in!
