Situated on 52 acres in the heart of Brooklyn, Brooklyn Botanic Garden (BBG) is a living museum, as well as a horticultural and botanical resource, featuring world-class plant collections and specialty gardens. BBG offers year-round Public Programs including Sakura Matsuri, "New York's Rite of Spring;" Chile Pepper Fiesta; and Ghouls and Gourds. BBG offers year-round Education programs, art gallery exhibitions, and use of its Library and Gardener's Resource Center. Noted as the "premier horticultural attraction in the region" by The New York Times, BBG features many "gardens with the Garden" - particularly the acclaimed Steinhardt Conservatory and the world-class Cranford Rose Garden. BBG is also known as a "Garden of Firsts" for creating the first Japanese garden in an American public garden; the country's first garden designed for the visually impaired; and the Children's Garden, the oldest children's garden in continuous operation and a prototype for children's gardens throughout the world.
