The Vanderbilt mansion and grounds are quite lovely, with fabulous views of the Hudson River valley. The restored gardens are planted and staffed essentially by volunteers,so check them out to the southern end of grounds. Too bad our cheap skate government has closed the road down to the river at the north end of park. You can walk it, but for many seniors it may be a bit much...uphill for a good 1/4 mile or more. For those who can hike it , they will,find lovely river access and views.
Also the GOOGLE web site incorrectly lists hours and closed days. When the government isn't shut due to sequester, the park operates more or less from 9 am or so until sundown, not the 1-3 p.m only listed on google.
