Very peaceful and pretty. Parking isn't free and it's 7 to 10 dollars I believe. Street parking is your best bet and if you're lucky because flushing is very busy. The whole garden can be seen in under an hour, but it's a great place to sit and enjoy nature.
As for Botanical Garden it's rather small, so I wouldn't travel out to Queens just to visit this Botanical Garden as your only stop of the day. What we did was visit the Garden first, you'll be able to leave and come back in with your receipt if you're not a member. Plan lunch and other stops within walking distance and you're set for a fun day in Queens.
Not giving it five stars because it's the biggest and best botanical garden in the city, but because I support any effort in Queens to bring some countryside wisdom into the bowels of urban asphalt and concrete. Yes, it's a tranquil and beautiful place and they have a nice, new parking lot. But for me, as a local, it's really about what it represents. Nature is a key part of any future city plan and we need places like this to be thought leaders and to inspire us. Grab the kids, grab the girlfriend, grab grandma, whatever. Just go there. Do it!
Extremely poor service, and their staff is very uninformed and inconsiderate with work ethics. Highly do not recommend this place if you are booking a wedding.
Certainly not the largest of the borough gardens, but it's well kept and it's nice if you want a short stroll. The upside is that it's pretty easy to find street parking if you want to save money on parking.
