Accessibility

Welcome to Wave Hill!

Much of the gardens and indoor spaces of Wave Hill are accessible to all our visitors.

Wave Hill offers limited wheelchair-accessible parking onsite. Please be sure to present your access license plate or valid government-issued permit at our Front Gate.

The Perkins Visitor Center, Glyndor Gallery and the Great Lawn are accessible. Most areas in the Flower Garden are accessible. The Ecology Building, temporary home to some of our programs while Wave Hill House is under renovation, can only be reached by stairs. To participate in the Family Art Project, a program that meets in the Ecology Building every Saturday and Sunday morning, Wave Hill Education Department staff offer a satellite program, open to any visitors. In good weather, it takes place in the Picnic Area adjacent to Glyndor House. On inclement days, it occurs inside Glyndor. Please alert the Front Gate if you’d like to attend the satellite Family Art Project.

Wheelchairs are available on request at the Perkins Visitor Center. An all-terrain, manually operated wheelchair is also available, thanks to  the generous support of The Morris P. Leibovitz Foundation.  It accommodates up to 250 pounds. For use, please inquire at the Front Gate when  you arrive.

Trained guide dogs are permitted. A motorized courtesy cart, manned by Wave Hill staff, is available on request at the Front Gate.

Enjoy your visit, and please do not hesitate to communicate any special needs you may have to staff at the Front Gate or Perkins Visitor Center.
