The Queens Botanical Garden is a lovely public garden in Flushing, Queens.
Latin Art Blooms in the Queens Botanical Garden. Ankhlave Arts Alliance. Through September 8, 2020.
The 39-acre garden was originally part of the 1939 New York World’s Fair. It was moved to the present location in 1963. The garden was built over part of Kissena Creek.
The garden features rose, bee, herb, wedding and perennial gardens. It has an arboretum and an art gallery. The Visitor building was the first building in New York City to earn the highest level green certification. That is almost poetic.
Living in the city, it is wonderful and almost necessary to step into nature once in awhile.
