The Lenoir Preserve is a former mansion property with spectacular views of the Hudson River and the Palisades. It seems to have been donated to Yonkers without enough money for proper upkeep, since it's very overgrown. A few years ago, it was even worse. They've...More

Nothing to see but bushes. They have a butterfly garden that's overgrown. Not one butterfly was to be seen. There is also construction going on. My daughter and I left in less than an hour

This is a small, beautiful little oasis perfect for a leisurely walk, some birdwatching or a picnic lunch. There's a children's butterfly garden that's not to be missed. Go at dusk or early in the morning and you'll very likely see deer.

If you're seeking manufactured bells and whistles, then this isn't for you. If you relish the subtle, yet awesome beauty of nature in its glory, you'll love it. Take a peaceful walk through and watch nature and let it watch you. Simply enjoy.

Lenoir Preserve is a beautiful nature respite in a fairly large city. It has trails that are easy and some through the wooded area that are a little more challenging, but not difficult. It is a great place for birders with many species frequenting the...More
