    Our daughter’s wedding this past weekend at Queens Botanical Gardens was everything we dreamed and envisioned it would be. The Gardens were still beautiful (could have been a concern in September,) th...  more »

    Nice and a garden of flowers simply magnificent. Spend at least 4 hours. You can have lunch there quietly and have the company of peacocks docile waiting to be fed.

    As a botanical garden it will inevitably draw comparisons with the others around the city and though it isn't as "grand" as the others, it is still a nicely maintained garden with a variety of plants and active wildlife. The staff is really friendly and helpful and the whole area is super relaxing. Some cons are that there's a heck of a lot of planes flying overhead, there's very little educational information around (they do have a kids education center though), and I was almost hit by a falling tree branch. Other than that though, great place!

    It's so beautiful here! I can't wait to go back! The gardens are so well-tended. It's the perfect place to go on a date or take your family or just because you feel like it. It's not a place you can regret going!

    The QBG is pretty dope. I visited in the winter to check it out as a possible venue for an event to take place in the spring or fall and you could easily tell how beautiful the grounds would be at those times of the year. The staff clearly have a lot of experience and know what they're doing. It's not cheap, however, and although the garden owns quite a bit of land (something like 35+ acres), it's still easy to tell it's in the middle of a big, noisy city.

    I come here a lot with my family. More peaceful than the Flushing Corona Park. I enjoy coming here during the winter also. Great atmosphere.

    It's getting there…… someday it might be an institution to recon with, until then just enjoy a place to sit among green plants on the outskirts of downtown Flushing. They have a very nice fence………just incase you are a fan of fences around public parks & the lot.
