As members of BBG, we visit often! Lovely gardens to explore in any season, especially summertime. The gardens are located adjacent to Prospect Park. You can check to see which plants are in bloom here: https://www.bbg.org/bloom.
Located next to the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, you can purchase the "Brooklyn Art & Garden" ticket and visit both! The museum has an amazing permanent collection, including several pieces by Kehinde Wiley, and a very cool Bowie exhibit open until July 15th.
Every Sunday, from April to November, Smorgasburg comes to Prospect Park. Smorgasburg is an open air food festival (free to enter) featuring 100 of the best local vendors. It's a really fun way to sample some of Brooklyn's best eats! Do some park exploring along the way!

The High Line is a public park built on a historic freight rail line elevated above the streets on Manhattan's West Side. It runs from Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking District to West 34th Street, between 10th and 12th Avenues. There are several access points along the way! Very popular in the summer so go early in the morning or later in the evening.
