As the city eases into Phase 4 reopening, Brooklynites will soon be able to return to the scenic grounds of the Brooklyn Botanic Garden.
While virtual programming, including performances, tours and educational programming, has provided glimpses of the garden during the pandemic, the public will be able enjoy the botanical surroundings in person starting August 7.
In an update posted on the BBG website and an emailed release, the organization announced advanced timed-entry tickets will be required to limit capacity and there will be new safety guidelines in place. Reservations for those timed tickets will not start until Monday, July 27. They may go quickly as the first four weeks will include free admission for all.
If you are a member of BBG, you’ll be able to get a sneak peak from July 31 to August 6. For updates, check out their COVID-19 closure update information online.
