The warm weather, singing birds, and fresh spring breeze are finally here, and the Brooklyn Botanic Garden (BBG) is starting to bloom. Celebrate spring by loading the kids into the van rental and enjoying this natural Brooklyn masterpiece.

The Highlight: Cherry Trees

The cherry trees are the belle of the ball at the BBG. April and May are the peak blooming months, so don’t miss your chance to see these gorgeous blossoms come to life! Our gardens feature hundreds of cherry trees — especially the Cherry Esplanade section. Many people would agree that the Cherry Esplanade is the most gorgeous — and fragrant — area of Brooklyn in the spring.

Get a sneak peak of these beautiful trees.
