Untermyer Gardens was built by Samuel Untermyer in 1917 and was called "America's Most Spectacular Garden" in the 1920's. Owned by the City of Yonkers and located on the Hudson River on 43 acres, it is undergoing an extensive restoration by the Untermyer Gardens Conservancy. The Walled Garden is the finest Persian Garden in the Western Hemisphere. The Temple of Love, with its five waterfalls, is breathtaking. The Vista is the most monumental feature of the garden, terminated by two ancient Roman columns, 2000 years old. Come see magnificent architecture, staggering views and sophisticated horticulture.
Tours are 90 minutes and cost $10 per person, kids 12 and under are free. Meet behind the Community Center, bring water and wear sturdy closed toe shoes. The weekly tours alternate between history focused and horticulture focused, but both are appropriate for all audiences. Once a month there is a President's tour, which costs $20. Please refer to the website for specific dates. Oct 1 and Oct 29 are horticulture tours, Oct 8, Oct 22 and Nov 5 are history tours and Oct 15 is the President's tour ($20). No reservations are needed. Please note that the water in the Walled Garden canals has been drained and the annual plants there have been removed due to a construction project, but all the trees, evergreen shrubs and plants along the perimeter remain intact as do all the other garden areas on the property.
