Private Tour of Queens Botanical Garden & Picnic
Time & Location
About The Event
Join The Camaraderie NYC for a private tour of the wonderful Queens Botanical Gardens.
We will have a blissful morning exploring what’s in bloom at the Garden, hearing about curious creatures, the botanical heritage of Queens, and more.
Afterwards we will enjoy a relaxed BYO picnic in the garden's arboretum.
We think a day like this is JUST what Springtime 2021 calls for. See you there!
Queens Botanical Garden (QBG) is an urban oasis where people, plants, and cultures are celebrated through inspiring gardens, innovative educational programs, and real-world applications of environmental stewardship.
Located at the northeast corner of Flushing Meadows-Corona Park in Flushing, QBG evolved from the five-acre “Gardens on Parade” exhibit showcased at the 1939-1940 New York World’s Fair. Officially opening as “The Queens Botanical Garden Society” in 1946 after local residents saved and expanded the original exhibit, the Garden remained at the original World’s Fair site until 1961, when it was moved to its current location on Main Street in Flushing. Among the original plantings taken from the 1939 site are two blue atlas cedars that frame the iconic tree gate sculpture at the Garden’s Main Street entrance today. QBG has become a 39-acre oasis in one of New York City’s most bustling and diverse neighborhoods.
Open to all NYC women and first-timers are encouraged.
