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

This is a unique, stunningly beautiful hidden historical garden in Yonkers with a perfect balance of planned and wild parts, open spaces and hidden corners. It's on a slope above the Hudson with beautiful views on the water. No entrance fee is charged and it's open from 8am until sunset. Perfect for picnics, walks, reading a book or just sitting...

We visited on a whim to this free garden, not quite sure what to expect since no one we know had heard of it. Located right off Broadway, in the shadow of a local hospital, this 42 acre garden is the best kept secret of Yonkers. Compared to the more well-known southern neighbor, Wave Hill, Untermyer Gardens is superior on... More

Nice setting by the Hudson. One can still appreciate the arquitectural details of the columns, walls, and intricate design of the floor.

Well-tended gardens and lovely stonework from another era. Wonderful place for photography. It's mostly quiet, even with groups around. Easy walking and a beautiful sight around every turn.
