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!

A beautiful property. Probably great in season. Nice greenhouse. Very pleasant place for a Sunday afternoon.

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 it wouldn't be a top Bronx recommendation for people visiting our neighborhood unless they are in the immediate area.

mostly locals in Riverdale know this beautiful location with view of the Palisades and lovely gardens. The mansion is lovely, used as a venue space. There are tranquil paths, well kept lawns, and a very peaceful atmosphere. Limited parking is available and it is a bit of a walk from the nearest bus stop. There are no nearby subway stops although MetroNorth Riverdale station is a formidable up hill walk away
