02 Sep Complimentary Admission to Brooklyn Botanic Garden on September 11
Brooklyn Botanic Garden will be open to all for a day of reflection.
Brooklyn Botanic Garden hopes to always be a place of peace and reflection for our community. For the 20th anniversary of September 11, the Garden will offer free admission to visitors all day.
The Garden has two collections in remembrance of September 11. The Tree Peony Collection that blooms in the spring was presented to the Garden in 2002 by the Japanese town of Yatsuka-Cho in Shimane Prefecture to “bring peace of mind to the people of the United States.” Along the eastern and western edges of Cherry Esplanade are allées of scarlet oak trees, the Liberty Oaks, planted in remembrance of the events of that day and those who lost their lives.
