Untermyer Gardens Conservancy, Yonkers Garden lovers will relish the beauty of Untermyer Gardens in Yonkers, but for anyone with a thirst for greenery, the outdoors and beautiful scenery, this sensational property overlooking the Hudson River is worth a visit. Once the home of Samuel Untermyer, a prominent lawyer and civic leader, the once grand estate is now in the hands of the City of Yonkers. What was once over 150 acres with 60 greenhouses, is now approximately 43 acres. It includes a walled garden, a pillared Temple of Love and an area known as The Vista, a series of descending stairs modeled after the Villa D’Este in Italy. There are reminders of days past in this lovely spot, including the estate’s Color Gardens, the once impressive terraced Italian vegetable gardens, the 12 remaining columns from the Rose and Dahlia Gardens; what was once the Sundial Garden, as well as a now unused gatehouse. The post popular area for visitors is the Walled Garden, a Persian-styled garden that is popular with professional photographers, videographers and filmmakers. It contains unique water features, Greek columns and a temple bearing the mosaic of the Gorgon Medusa. Untermyer is quickly becoming one of America’s most beautiful public gardens. It is open from 7 a.m. to sunset every day. Public tours are available from late April through November. For more information, go to http://www.untermyergardens.org/ Ice Cream, Anyone?
