It was a beautiful Friday afternoon in the beginning of August so we decided to visit the Untermyer Gardens in Yonkers NY; which were recommended by some friends. The entrance to the gardens is on North Broadway and you could miss it if you’re not observant. There is no charge to enter the gardens or to park so we drove... More

Crenellated walls and cornered towers surround this beautiful park and gardens on North Broadway. The Greek goddess, Artemis, goddess of the hunt, welcomes visitors into the Persian Walled Garden featuring four intersecting canals, on a north-south axis, representing the four ancient rivers and the four elements:air, earth, water and fire. An amphitheater at the end on one of the canals... More

The garden is so pretty. It is an amazing space to walk around and enjoy nature. The view of the Hudson River is amazing. It is wonderful to see this Persian Garden come back to life.

Untermyer Garden combines the ruins of what was with the flowering of what will be. This garden certainly isn't (yet) up to the standards of Wave Hill to the south, it is in gritty Yonkers not well heeled Riverdale, but where else are you going to find a walled Persian Garden with Corinthian columns, decorative canals, fountains and mosiacs? And,... More

We almost missed the turn to go into the gardens, so keep your eyes peeled! Parking is free. The trails and grounds are well kept. Views are stunning! Be sure to bring a camera to capture the scenery.

I'm almost reluctant to review this place, it is so magical and infrequently used. Formerly the garden of a private estate, it was abandoned, rehabilitated and now offers incredible beauty and peace to its few and fortunate visitors.

It was early in the spring so none of the gardens were in bloom nor trees leafed out, nor the fountains operating but we could tell the place must be really nice in the summer. Great views of the Hudson. Nice memorial on the site.

Once was a manor house with a lot of garden/wooded property. The city offers concerts on sundays during the summer. Ornate old pools and flower gardens. Probably the number one spot in Yonkers for outside wedding pictures.

Took the chairmen's tour this past Sunday ( 7/12/15) and it was well worth it. The amount of background information that was shared opened up a new level of understanding of this local treasure. We have been to Untermeyer's many times below to just walk and take in the gardens, we have seen this property in many states of repair... More

One of the many surprises in Yonkers is the wonderful Untermyer Gardens located on North Broadway. With great views of the Hudson and the Palisades, the Gardens have a distinguished historical pedigree, but years of neglect were taking their toll. Happily, a conservancy and an enlightened city administration are finding ways to restore the gardens. Although more remains to be... More
