  • The collection of flowers and other flora here is quite nice and if you get off the main paths towards the back, you can definitely find some nice quiet places amongst the trees.  more »

  • 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.
