Free Admission Tuesday at Brooklyn Botanic Garden - see INFO below. Over the next year, Brooklyn Botanic Garden will complete the final phase of a garden-wide renewal to help ensure it remains vital in its second century. The Garden is replacing aging infrastructure with modern technologies and greener practices and building its capacity to welcome increasing numbers of visitors. Included in this final phase is the Water Conservation Project, which will help BBG significantly reduce its freshwater consumption and storm-water impact on the city. Other projects over the past ten years have included development of more than four acres of sustainably designed and maintained gardens and facilities as well as expanded education and community programs that support environmental stewardship. Their completion will enhance every corner of the Garden and strengthen Brooklyn Botanic Garden's role as a vital resource for the larger community.
