Making Your Way Through The Gardens
We suggest that you take a few minutes when you arrive, take your map of the Garden in hand and see what it has to offer. Are you an avid gardener? Maybe you want to check out the Fragrance Garden. If you combine your gardening skills with cooking, you may want to spend some more time in the Herb Garden. Are you into botany? You may then want to budget out more time to check out the Steinhardt Conservatory.
