Brooklyn Botanic Garden is committed to making its exhibitions, programs and services accessible to all who visit, and is working to make its gardens and facilities accessible. However, due to the historic nature of much of the Garden, some areas may present challenges to those with ambulatory disabilities.

Created in 1955 and enjoyed by all visitors to Brooklyn Botanic Garden, the Alice Recknagel Ireys Fragrance Garden was the first garden in the country designed for the sight-impaired. A stroll through the Alice Recknagel Ireys Fragrance Garden is an indulgence of all the senses. Visitors to this peaceful, intimate garden are encouraged to touch and smell the plants. Braille labels identify the specimens, which grow in raised beds at just the right height for people in wheelchairs. Garden beds are arranged by theme: Plants with Scented Leaves, Plants for Touch, Fragrant Flowers, and Kitchen Herbs.
