we visited last Saturday and found the place very relaxing. We can see the fall foliage of the hudson, awesome. the garden itself is very tranquil, good vibes is in the air. Highly recommended to visit and enjoy the scenery and the tranquility this place can offer.

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.

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
