A Garden for All

In a stunning landscape overlooking the Hudson River and the sheer cliffs of the Palisades, Wave Hill is a beloved public garden, renowned for its classical horticultural craftsmanship and daring design. In addition to 28 acres of varied landscapes and garden areas, Wave Hill offers walks, workshops, art exhibitions, concerts and environmental programs year-round.
With the garden as centerpiece, programs and art exhibitions are tied to nature. Art workshops, for example, might take place outside or source material directly from the garden. Concerts are held both indoors and out. And nature-themed weekends, weaving learning with fun, are offered in every season. Come see beautiful Wave Hill!

Open All Year

In spring, the thrill of newness takes over the gardens and glory-of-the-snow, the first to bloom, spreads across the grounds and carpets the woodlands. Summer slips in with beauty everywhere, followed by autumn's brilliant colors and sharp air. Winter settles across the land and a hush pervades everything.

This oasis in the Bronx triggers one of those “Am-I-really-in-New-York?” moments. The answer: Yes, yes, you are.
