Coronavirus Update

Coronavirus Update

Brooklyn Botanic Garden is presently closed in order to support our city’s efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19. We are taking this step out of care for BBG staff and community members. We hope to reopen July 1, and if we are allowed and 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.

Over the coming weeks, the Garden's world-famous collection will blossom in isolation. Follow the blooms from home on CherryWatch.

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.

We can’t wait to welcome you back into the full embrace of the Garden after this emergency has abated.

Program Updates

Classes, workshops, tours and events are cancelled through June.
