Eastern Parkway Entrance, Osborne Garden & Robert W. Wilson OverlookNow open!
The Robert W. Wilson Overlook and Elizabeth Scholtz Woodland Garden are two major new gardens in the north end of Brooklyn Botanic Garden. The Overlook has been redesigned by Weiss/Manfredi (architects of BBG’s Visitor Center) with a new sculpted landscape that invites visitors to stroll, rest, explore beautiful new plantings, and enjoy spectacular views along a curvilinear path. This new ADA-accessible path is defined by crape-myrtle trees, ornamental grasses, and herbaceous perennials.
Elizabeth Scholtz Woodland GardenUnder construction through Fall 2019
The Woodland Garden, designed by Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates (landscape architects of the Water Garden and Discovery Garden), features an open-air walled garden with shade-loving plants and beautiful serpentine paths. An accessible pathway will meander through a recontoured landscape to connect the Lilac Collection, the Osborne Garden, the Native Flora Garden, and a new maple grove.
Native Flora GardenClosed through Fall 2019
The Native Flora Garden is closed to accommodate construction of the Woodland Garden and renovation of major paths in this area. Various paths and walkways in other parts of Brooklyn Botanic Garden will also be temporarily closed for construction access and repaving.
