Wave Hill is a small park that historically was used as a home by some wealthy and famous people. It's right on the Hudson and the view and the breeze are delightful. Some gardens, an art museum and a place to eat all add to...More

This peaceful garden with great views is also home to many species of plants and trees. Get a walk with a botanist ( check their schedule). We understood much more and enjoyed it better when we knew the stories, history. You can bring a picnic...More

This is a smaller garden in Riverdale. It has an amazing view of the Hudson River and the Palisades. The grounds are kept impeccable. It is a very serene place.

If you love outdoor life, castles and beautiful flowers - it’s for you! One little hint - Saturday free admission 10am -12 pm. I love this place any season is beautiful!

Beautiful gardens, views (Hudson) and greenhouse. Not a common destination - especially for tourists. But if you are in NYC for an extended time, and you are near, it is totally worth it if you like plants.

We enjoyed a winter visit to Wave Hill and pretty view of the river. Since it is a bit of a trek for us, I'm not sure I would go back any time soon. The grounds are pretty and they do some interesting programs but...More
