Join GreenHomeNYC for a very special tour of the Brooklyn Botanical Garden’s new Visitor’s Center!

 

BBG’s Visitor Center, located at 990 Washington Avenue, offers an exciting and innovative gateway to the Garden. Seamlessly melding architecture and landscape, the new entrance is a model of energy-efficient design, including earth-sheltered construction, a geoexchange system for heating and cooling, a living roof, and fritted-glass walls. Surrounding the building is a new garden filled with native plantings and water-capturing beds. Meticulously designed by the renowned architecture firm Weiss/Manfredi, the Visitor Center aspires to LEED Gold certification for environmental sustainability.

 

Please note, the price of this tour includes the facilities tour as well as admission to the garden.
