Garden Closure Update
Brooklyn Botanic Garden is presently closed by order of New York City and New York State, as part of our city’s efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19. We support this step out of care for BBG staff and community members. We hope to reopen July 1, and if we are able to safely open sooner, we will.
The Garden Online
We are excited to bring the Garden to our visitors virtually this spring. Through these unprecedented times, Brooklyn Botanic Garden remains committed to connecting communities to the wonder and delight of plants and people.
Follow @brooklynbotanic on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, and visit this website’s homepage, where we are sharing daily bloom photos, virtual tours of the spring collections, and ideas for families and home gardeners on ways to celebrate the spirit of spring at home.
Children and their caretakers will find a variety of resources at Kids and Families.
Home gardeners can brush up on skills with Gardening How-to Articles.
We can’t wait to welcome you back into the full embrace of the Garden after this emergency has abated.
Classes, workshops, tours and events are cancelled through June.
- BBG memberships will be automatically extended by two months.
- If you would like a refund for a class, please reach out to Registration at 718-623-7220 or [email protected].
