New York City's Secret Gardens
Spring is here, and Stuyvesant Cove Park is starting to look seriously amazing, with new flowers blooming every day! Right now, we have wild columbine, wild geranium, verbena, beach plum, golden alexander, and even a couple of trumpet flower honeysuckle with beautiful red clusters of flowers. And in the coming months, we'll have Carolina roses, anemone, coreopsis and crimson-eyes rosemallow, a so-showy-it's-almost-vulgar native hibiscus with flowers the size of dinner plates!
And while Stuyvesant Cove is not a secret to you (we hope!), it's hardly the only lesser known park in town. Check out this list of 30 "secret" public parks and gardens that even lifelong New Yorkers may not be familiar with. From Midtown Manhattan pocket parks to the green expanses of the Bronx, NYC's green spaces can offer a wonderful respite from the concrete jungle, no matter where you happen to be.
