I went walking through the beautiful gardens with my husband, and it reminded me of the type of gardens where royal weddings were performed. There is a little restoration of the buildings there, but that doesn't prevent viewing the gardens and strolling along it's gorgeous paths.

Taking a walk through these gardens was an unbelievable experience. Seeing the gardens in the summer with all the beautiful flowers in bloom, and visualuzing the opulence that once was was extraordinary. Summer concerts there are also extremely enjoyable.

Walked about an hour on the trails then came back up to the Untermeyer property. Loved being along the Hudson as well as seeing some very old... More

Great place to walk of Thanksgiving dinner. Park is going though a renovation but you can see how its going to be by the work in progress ,The fountains area reminds me of the Taj Mahal. The rest of the park has some great views of the Hudson river and the overall feel of the countryside right in the city... More

A truly beautiful Persian garden which is receiving much needed restoration but remains very accessible. A lovely spot for sitting with a book or strolling around enjoying the view. I can't wait to see it when they finish the restoration.

Untermeyer Garden is a beautiful place. Walking into the walled garden reminded me of Alhambra in Grenada, Spain. This was our first visit and unfortunately there were no tours which means we have to go back in the Spring. The grounds are beautifully landscaped with Persian, Greek and Roman structures. The trees and shrubs and fountains were amazing on this... More

We have lived in Yonkers all our lives so we used to sneak into Untermeyer as teens at night and look for signs of satanic worship. The stories were that the Son of Sam and other cults participated in some rituals here. Fast forward ten to fifteen year when it came time for a location for our wedding photos, we... More

A fantastic devotion by its current caretakers has made Untermeyer Garden a gem on the Hudson. Take the time to explore it as fully as possible. Just up the Road is their neighbor, Alder Manor. The St. John's Hospital between these properties, south of Executive Boulevard, was built on land taken from either estate.
