Gardens within a Garden

Here you will find a multitude of linked gardens, distinct from one another and intimate, as well as wide-open stretches of land. Frequently described as an urban oasis, Wave Hill comes as an enchanting surprise. The 28-acre site itself is stunning—high above the Hudson River with sweeping views and lots of open sky.

Founding head gardener Marco Polo Stufano first intended Wave Hill to be a beautiful respite for the people of the city. Now it's visited by people from all over the world.

With wildly beautiful gardens as starting point, nature is the springboard for art creation and education. There is always something to make, learn or do at Wave Hill that circles back to this life-affirming foundation.

The gardens at Wave Hill are like a jazz pianist's riff...always enroute, done once, never quite the same.
