More Grows in the Garden, Than the Gardener Knows He Has Planted
More grows in the garden than the gardener knows he has planted.”Spanish proverb
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, but it is necessary to step into nature once in awhile.
