Parking is fairly limited right at the sitend, but worth the effort. Wonderful waterfront gardens. Try to go when it's not busy on peak periods.

An historic jewel that was rescued from being forgotten, the gardens are being granted a new life through the painstaking work of the current team. The once-grand vision of a Persian garden are being restored in a loving way. The restoration work has made great progress and each new step is thrilling to see. A must-see glimpse into the glamorous... More

I was not aware of this garden until recently when our alumni group planned a work project to help cleanup this Garden. What a gorgeous place. You ought to get a group together to go help renovate/revive/preserve this beautiful place is incredible architecture, view, and gardens

The Untermyer gardens are part of an estate that was donated to Yonkers. For years it was rundown, but they've done a lot of work on it recently, this year adding a new waterfall and redoing a lot of the tiles in the Roman garden. You could easily drive by this place (it's on rte 9 a little south of... More

This used to be a privately owned estate with fabulous gardens overlooking the Hudson River. It has fallen into disrepair but over the last few years it has undergone extensive restoration, with some work obviously still needed. Now open to the public free of charge, it is definitely worth a visit, especially when the weather is good. It is apparently... More

Picturesque. Beautiful place to take pictures and hang out with your loved one. The history of it is one to learn about in order to really appreciate the gardens.

This park is amazing and photos do not do it justice. Its not very known and it is really a magical place. There's the main gardens, then there's a waterfall section, and some fantastic views of the Hudson. If you need a cheap date make it a picnic. There's also some poke stops if you're into that sort of thing.... More
