Fantastic Outdoor Programs for Fall

Come chase the leaves or sit in a Wave Hill chair and take in the glory of fall. And if you want to join a program, we have many in the gardens this fall.

Every Thursday and Saturday, gallery guides offer tours of our current exhibitions in Glyndor Gallery. There are Garden Highlights Walks led by Wave Hill Garden Guides every Sunday and don't miss our GivingTuesday FREE ADMISSION DAY on November 30 with a Gallery Tour and Garden Highlights Walk.


Fall, Leaves, Fall

From our Woodlands thick with fallen leaves to our resplendent oaks, lindens, beeches and maples, the trees of Wave Hill are in their full glory this time of year. And don't miss the fiery surprises flourishing in the Paisley Bed.

The Paisley Bed

This bed, named for its shape, is an example of a seasonal bedding scheme—a planting that exists for just one season. The design for 2021's Paisley Bed showcases a modern interpretation of the Victorian practice of "bedding-out" to create tapestries of unusual and colorful design.
