Overview

Located in The Staten Island Botanical Garden, this garden is designed by the Landscape Architecture Corporation of China and has a collection of beautiful pavilions, walkways and courtyards. Scholar gardens are a concept unique to the Ming and Qing dynasties around 200 years back. A scholar or administrator belonging to the royal court would design these enclosed gardens. In these gardens the scenery changes beautifully, leaving a wonderfully dramatic impact. Guided tours are conducted on weekends, please check the website for specific timings.
