Visit a lush botanical wonderland located right in Bronx, NY. Easily accessible via Yonkers Station, Wave Hill is the perfect attraction for anyone looking to take advantage of warm weather or to find the beauty in the colder months in New York.
At the establishment, you’ll find multiple gardens encompassed by the larger garden of Wave Hill as a whole. The property encompasses 28-acres of land near the Hudson River, in which you can experience both. The two greatest aspects of the property are the gardens and the arts.
There are several gardens and attractions to experience throughout the property. These gardens include the lush Pergola, Flower Garden and the Herb and Dry Gardens. At the Pergola, you’ll witness scenic views of the Hudson River, while at the Flower Garden, you’ll experience a beautiful garden that changes with the seasons. The Herb and Dry Gardens are adorned by exactly what their name implies: an array of herbs and ornamental plants. Also on the property is the T.H. Everett Alpine House, Wild Garden and the Marco Polo Stufano Conservatory. Each of these three attractions has something unique to offer, from plants found on mountains to a hillside garden that offers views of the Hudson River.
Also found at Wave Hill is the Paisley Bed, Conifer Slope, Herbert & Hyonja Abrons Woodland and the Aquatic & Monocot Gardens. These gardens offer an escape from the city environment of the Bronx and into woodlands and aquatic settings.
Aside from the beauty the gardens provide, you can also experience the arts. Wave Hill offers a multitude of exhibitions and performances.
“Wave Hill is a jewel. A botanical wonderland without compare that makes you feel lucky to be alive (and that’s precious).”
