Stopped by the Nature center and was totally surprised as to how cool of a place this is, Trails were well marked and fairly easy to navigate, a bit hilly with its ups and downs but not bad. Very nice main house Manor building, playground for the kids too. A definite stop by for the family... ENJOY....

Great day trip where you can immerse yourself in untrammeled nature just a 1/4 mile off a busy road.

We love looking at the eagles, owls, rabbits, sheep and crows. But mostly we love the huge shade trees, easy trails and picnic tables. The playground is top notch-- all of this is free- a fee is charged to see the smaller mammals, snakes and insects inside.

You can walk on the trails for free, there's voluntary admission fee for the Manor House, which contains small animals which have been rescued and are being taken care of and released when healthy. Throughout the year they have various events which includes the entire family. They have a beautiful pond with turtles and frogs.

Just what we need to know to understand those little creatures. Had a fine time with the ferrets and other little creatures.

The trails are great for a rustic run. There is an educational spot with some native animals good for kiddies, adjacent to the original manor home. The current caretakers live in the outbuilding. The Center is adjacent to the Edgemont School.

The Greenburgh Nature Center has some nice trails considering where it's located. The main house works effectively enough in terms of interest for very young children, and the rest is over before one knows it. Everyone is quite likable and caring, but it just seems other venues are in a financial position to do this better. It's also a bit... More

hiking trails, animals that you can pet and play with, knowledgable and friendly staff. Facilities are beautiful and very well maintained. Always a lot of activities going on. Don't miss prairie dogs!

We spent quite a bit of time here this past summer. There is a large grass area and some very nice play sets for the kids (for different ages). We love the area with all the animals, though depending on what time you visit they may not be out. It is much better maintained than some of the other parks/playgrounds... More

This was our third visit in the past 2 years. This time we were at the center for a birthday party for my 3 year old grandson. The guests included at least 15 3 year olds and some siblings (older and younger). Everyone had a great time.
