Growing from the 1939 World’s Fair exhibit, “Gardens on Parade”, and moved to its current location for the 1964 New York World’s Fair, Queens Botanical Garden is located outside the northeast corner of Flushing Meadow Corona Park, in Queens, NY. The Garden’s cultural vision—to be the botanical garden noted for the presentation of plants as unique expressions of cultural traditions—is reflected in the present plantings and plans for the future. The 39 acres contain the Woodland, Rose, Herb, Bee, Perennial, Backyard gardens, Pinetum, and the Arboretum. Displays of tulips, chrysanthemums, wildflowers, herbs, and perennials change with the seasons. A new 16,000 square-foot Visitor & Administration Building is scheduled to open during Summer of 2007. QBG offers educational programs including Seeds for Seniors, Children’s Garden, concerts, garden tours, talks and workshops on horticulture, and environmental stewardship.
