The Prettiest Parks in NYC: Battery Park; Brooklyn Botanical Garden’s Japanese Hill-and-Pond Garden; Bowling Green; Flushing Meadows- Corona Park; and The New York Botanical Garden.
Would you like to learn about stunning native plants and trees? Then, go to Battery Park? This park is situated at the tip of Manhattan and was masterfully redesigned by Dutch garden designer Piet Oudolf. This historical park is free to the public.
Address: 75 Battery Place, Nueva York, NY 10280.
How about something exotic? Brooklyn Botanical Garden’s Japanese Hill-and-Pond Garden is steeped in history and tradition.
This garden has been cultivated since the early 1800’s. It exhibits a wide range of notable Japanese artifacts including a 500 year old Japanese lantern.
The price for admission into the gardens is $10.00. Free group tours are available upon request.

And why not a little of history? Bowling Green is New York City’s oldest park. According to tradition, this spot served as the council ground for Native American tribes. It was the beginning of Heere Staat (High Street, now Broadway), a trade route which extended north through Manhattan and the Bronx. A 1976-77 capital renovation restored Bowling Green to its 18th-century appearance.
Since December 1989 the statue of Charging Bull (1987-89) by Arturo DiModica has been on display at the north end of the park.
Address: Whitehall St, New York, NY 10004.
Would you like to know the world? Go to Flushing Meadows–Corona Park? Its most enduring icon is the Unisphere, the mammoth steel globe created for the 1964 World’s Fair.
The rolling green fields also encompass a zoo, a boating lake, a skate park, a barbecue area, playfields, and a $66 million aquatic and hockey center. Furthermore, you can fish at Meadow Lake.
Address: Grand Central Pkwy., Whitestone Exwy. bet. 111 St. and College Point Blvd., Park Drive E. Queens.
In my opinion, the garden king is The New York Botanical Garden. This 250-acre site’s verdant landscape supports over one million living plants in extensive collections.
Address: 2900 Southern Blvd, Bronx, NY 10458, United States.
Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you!
