Botanical Garden, Bronx, NY 10458, USA

Just like the Bronx Zoo, I got to revisit this park again for the first time in 20 years. Gosh! Just after my first five minutes of walking through the grounds I’d gotten the feeling that I was in a wonderland. ‘Just as I remember it from childhood. With plush green lawns and trees of every sort, one is bombarded with green, green and then more green of every shade imaginable.

All 250 acres of grounds, gardens, plant collections, flowers, picnic grounds, and a huge conservatory make this one of the oldest and largest botanical gardens in the world. There are year ’round exhibitions at the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory. It’s basically one acre of plant life under glass. It’s actually quite impressive to look at.

On hand at the Garden is a tram tour for a small fee. It might turn out to be your cup of tea should you not be in the mood for hiking. ‘and boy, did I hike! You’ll need decent stamina to make through parts of the 40 acre Forest. It’s really beautiful within. Armed with their free grounds map, you should easily find your way to the waterfall. You’ll know you’re getting closer as the rushing water gets louder. Be careful along the way out from the Waterfall Overlook since the terrain gets a bit tricky. There are number of other gardens and exhibitions to see. Give ’em a call to find out.

Here is a funny little bit. Walking along the way, not too far from the waterfall is this house. It’s beautiful! A real Kodak Moment! Anyhow, I’m waltzin’ around looking for Snuff Mill and I swore this had to be it. Heck, the wooden fence door was open. So I entered and walked around and took pics. It was only when I walked out that I saw a sign declaring it as a private residence. ‘Never found out what a private residence is doing in the middle of the park (I eventually will), and never found snuff mill either (or maybe I did and was expecting something grander?). My point is this, it was something to laugh about afterwards, but just be careful when you come upon this house…..lol
