A Sunday in mid-May, in a garden as deeply loved as Wave Hill, is the perfect setting for celebrating Mom: think birding, perhaps a plein-air session of yoga, a visit to the Family Art Project and a superb brunch in historic Armor Hall—or a picnic on the Conifer Slope, a special Mother’s Day opportunity! Finish the visit on a Family Nature Walk, and a stop in The Shop to admire the handcrafted, sustainable gifts produced by in-store vendor Lovewild Design, a Brooklyn-based studio run by a group of mothers and their own families.
The two seatings of Mother’s Day Brunch are already wait-list only, but, in addition to The Café itself, exclusive Wave Hill caterer Great Performances will offer four different gourmet “Family & Friends Picnic Baskets,” plus one more for kids, with a mix of vegan and gluten-free options. Place your order by Tuesday, May 9, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or calling 718.549.3200 x395. If you bring your own picnic, kindly remove everything you bring—and leave the barbecue equipment at home.
As always, the picnic area adjacent to Glyndor Gallery will be available. And--just this weekend--we invite you to picnic on the Conifer Slope below Wave Hill House. Please help us care for the gardens by not picnicking elsewhere. One blanket per family.
This special Sunday, admission to the grounds is $10 adults, $6 students and seniors 65+, $4 children 6–18. As always, admission is free to Wave Hill Members and children under six. Reciprocal benefits, guest passes and family passes are not accepted on Mother’s Day.
