Brooklyn Botanical Garden

The Brooklyn Botanical Garden is a 52-acre oasis in the northeast corner of Prospect Park. The garden was founded in 1910 and features more than 10,000 different plants from around the world.

I visited on May 4, 2007 and snapped these photos. The order approximates the self-guided walking tour pamphlet, which also provides the heading numbers. Guided tours are offered once a day during the spring and summer.
