History

The New York Botanical Garden (NYBG), founded in 1891, is characterized by the elegance of its scenery, collections, and parks and the depth and excellence of its horticultural, educational, and scientific programs. The Garden was inspired by The Royal Botanic Gardens near London by botanists Nathaniel and Elizabeth Lord Britton in 1888.

The Brittons thought New York should have a great botanical garden to help provide educational resources and interests in plants' knowledge, rare species, and as a hub for deeper research into botanical science. The Garden was located in the northern half of Bronx Park because of its spectacular views, freshwater Bronx River, rock-cut canyon, and 50 acres of existing woodland.

Today, with over 250-acres of Garden, it holds its place as the largest Botanical Garden in the United States and is marked as a National Historic Landmark.

Gardens

The NYBG is home to an array of diverse plants, habitats, arboretums, and more. Some of the most visited collections include:

  • Arboretum Collections - Throughout the landscape, you'll find a variety of smalls trees, shrubs, crabapples, cherries, magnolias, among others.
  • The Azalea Garden - You can discover a diverse variety of growing trees and shrubs, forest perennials, bulbs, ferns, and grasses alongside the azaleas and rhododendron.
  • Children's Adventure Garden - Kids of all ages can enjoy climbing through boulders, observing the colorful landscape, and taking part in interactive family-friendly adventures throughout the garden.
  • Conservatory - A gorgeous example of Victorian-era glasshouse artistry as it showcases living collections of tropical rain forests, palms, cactus, aquatic and carnivorous plants.
