    There’s beauty to be found year-round at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, and this winter you can soak in the scenery for free. Free winter weekdays have begun at the garden and will run through February.

    Wander around the 52-acre site on a quiet winters day and enjoy the scent of pine and the pops of color from holly bushes and winterberry. If you are craving warmth you can head into one of the conservatories like the Tropical, Desert or Warm Temperate pavilions.

Free admission is on weekdays only, Tuesday through Fridays. Opening hours for the grounds, conservatory and cafe vary.
