Untermeyer Gardens makes for a lovely stop as you wind your way up the Hudson from the Bronx towards the river town of Hastings. Admission is free, and at 40 something acres, it is an easily walkable feast for the eyes. The fact that it has been only partially restored works in its favor. The beautiful gardens, set among semi-dilapidated... More

Don't miss the pathway down the hill with a lovely view of the Hudson. The gardener was very helpful and seemed knowledgeable about various plants there.

Beautiful gardens and grounds which overlook Hudson River. Free admission. Small parking lot but on-street parking nearby. Picturesque gardens which were quite popular with wedding groups the day we visited.

This site has beautiful gardens and some ruins (columns, walls, pool). There is a structure built on a stone outcropping called the Temple of Love; don't miss it! There are also some easy hiking trails around the grounds and overlooks of the Hudson River. It is easily accessible by car, train, and bike. The grounds are accessible from the Old... More

A lovely experience. The gardens are beautiful and well kept. There are a bunch of scenic overlooks and even hiking trails. You can easily spend a few hours there. The main area (walled garden) is what you see in most of the photos that people post, from there the garden branches off into some overlooks, including that of the Hudson... More

A trip to Untermeyer Park is always fun and relaxing but the best time to visit is for the July and August summer concerts. Ranging from opera to salsa, symphonic and everything else in between, these free concerts in this beautiful park hugging the Hudson River are a pleasant musical diversion. Come early and prepare to picnic on the lawn... More

I discovered this place by a "happy accident". Located next to the hospital in North Yonkers, Untermyer Gardens is a tranquil escape from the hustle and bustle. It's truly magnificent. Great place to read a book, unwind or pack a lunch.

The park is located int the north Yonkers area adjacent to the Hospital. It's been a fixture in the community for decades. There is a community center located in the park for seniors and parking is available. If your looking for a peaceful place to enjoy a a bagged lunch this is the place to go.

After leaving the hospital/ doctors office I noticed this hidden place in the winter time and made it my business to stop by!. I could just imagine how wonderful it would look during the Summer and Spring time. If you love nature make sure you go and visit. There are even deers that may make an appearance.
