Fall has arrived at the New York Botanical Garden
The best of fall is on display at the New York Botanical Garden. Hundreds of pumpkins and scarecrows now adorn the Bronx landscape for fall through October 31.
Head to the LuEsther T. Mertz Library Building and Enid A. Haupt Conservatory Square, where you’ll see pumpkins of all shapes and sizes and over 100 whimsical scarecrows on the winding trails of Everett Children’s Adventure Garden.
From 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. you can see these beautiful decorations, but NYBG will also be hosting fall events for kids and adults, including Puppets on Parade on weekends, where larger-than-life pumpkins and skeletons designed by the puppeteer. Lucrecia Novoa of Mascara Viva welcomes visitors as well as pumpkin carving demonstrations by Adam Bierton, 2015 winner of the Food Network series Halloween wars.
NYBG’s beloved kiku tradition – magnificent displays of chrysanthemums in amazing shapes, styles and sizes – will be incorporated into KUSAMA: Cosmic Nature and on display in select galleries at the Enid A conservatory from Saturday October 2 to Sunday 31. October. 2021 too.
You may also want to take a weekend walk in the Fall Forest in and around the Thain Family Forest. Here, visitors can “revel in the unique fall beauty and resilience of the 50-acre Thain Family Forest, the largest expanse of New York City’s original woodland landscape.”
