Beautiful garden area! You can wander paths past huge banyon trees that lead to a Japanese style garden. It was a lovely and relaxing walk through this lush site. There are bathrooms on site but they… Full review by Face_The_Elements

Very nice big park, with lots of places to sit and enjoy. Not a lot of flowers but a lot of greenery. We saw lots of birds/ducks and several people were using it for exerciseing. Full review by Lisa J

It depends upon what you like doing. This is not a botanical garden in the sense of strolling through a place that has featured botanical displays, such as the New York Botanical Garden. This is more a garden that could be used for a round of golf, if they allowed it. It has large swaths of grass, with select plants located throughout. It left me with the impression of being more of a public park to relax or picnic in, rather than a place of botanical displays. The plants that are there are established specimen plants, such as cycads and banyan trees. There are also bridges over water features. So think of it more resembling a public park rather than a botanical garden with floral displays. And like a public park, there is no cost.
Q:
Would I need to acquire a permit to secure the pavilions for a day?
A:
Sorry, I'm not familiar with the methods of booking the pavilions.
Q:

It's an open Parkland. Free entry.
Q:

I would say marginally wheelchair friendly. The paths are a little rough and tilt up and down slightly. Double the time you'll spend and get yourself a patient caregiver with strong arms and I think you'll be fine. Not so at Rainbow Falls where steep stairs lead upward for a great distance. This one might be a problem.
Q:
Viewing Queens garden in the evening
A:
This is a daytime attraction. Not really a place to be at at night.
