Untermyer Park is not the type of place that draws big crowds. And you'll find that's just how you'll like it. The park is a mix of a botanical garden, wooded trails, Greek/Roman architecture, and a colorful, albeit spooky, history. If you are a Yonkers or Hastings person or just a regular on the 6 bus, you've probably driven past... More

Untermeyer Gardens is a lovely respite and a hidden gem. Take a book and find a bench, take a walk or watch the sunset. It's glorious in the spring and throughout the summer. It's also a great place for photographers to practice their art with ruins and an abundance of flowers. If you're lucky, you'll also see deer families on... More

Few people know the history of Untermeyer gardens. Once upon a time it was the home of a wealthy lawyer. The property included St. John's hospital also. The lawyer and house are long gone but the beautiful gardens remain. It is a beautiful tranquil place to visit and enjoy.

Untermyer Gardens is Yonkers, hidden secret. Once you enter the Walled Gardens, you are going back in time... perhaps the Great Gatsby days will come to mind. The sculptures, ponds w/ gold fish, along with the amazing plants, trees, & view of the Hudson River & the Palisades will simply take your breathe away! The landscaping changes w/ the Seasons....

The history of the place adds spiritual beauty to the physical beauty of the gardens. It is a great place to get away from the rush of the city and spend a few hours (have a picnic) in the surrounding beauty. The flowers blooming around fountain of the walled garden are absolutely gorgeous. THe vista view is incredible. Bring your... More

This must have been a revelation in its time so I was surprised to learn that it was now known as the US's most forgotten garden. With some stunning vistas it must be difficult to maintain on its unusual site which in some places is quite steep - some of the constructions such as the Temple of Love are really... More

Still being rescued from decades of neglect, the Untermyer Estate retains its loveliness and some of its magic. Overlooking the Hudson, with stunning views, a really pretty walled garden with Moorish influences, and a lovely path down to the lowest level of the estate, this is an oasis created in another era, once again open to the public. GO. It's... More

The master horticulturist has done a great job recreating the gardens of the 1920's. Worth a visit for anyone in the area
