The Narrows Botanical Gardens is a garden designed and cared for by Bay Ridge residents. In 1995, two life-long Bay Ridgers decided to reclaim the overgrown and neglected section of the park, and today, the enclave has a garden dedicated to plants native to New York, a turtle sanctuary, a butterfly garden, several different tree groves, and a lawn with stunning views of the bay. The lawn also hosts outdoor movie nights and an art series by Gallery 364. Tucked away in South Brooklyn, the garden is the perfect, peaceful escape from Manhattan’s madness.

Bay Ridge really has some of the best views in the whole city, and the Narrows Botanical Gardens just takes the location to the next level. It’s a little hard to get to (not by bike, though!), but it’s worth the trip. I really love the butterfly garden.
