You will not believe you are in the Bronx! This garden (not a public park- you must pay to get in) has paved and rustic paths, willows you can sit beneath, and beautifully manicured gardens. The views... more »
WOW it's gorgeous here! It was not crowded at all in early April. Some children but not overrun. Big enough to wander and enjoy, small enough that it's not overwhelming. Beautiful greenhouses and views. Affordable to get in ($10 each adult). Very small parking lot but we found free parking in a 2 minute walk from the entrance.
The best kept secret place in the Bronx!! It is the most serene ,well manicured place, the views are breathtaking with strategically placed cafe overseeing the Hudson River and the NJ palisades! The remodeled cafe is rather modern ! In a way I preferred the old cafe with its cozy feeling, their muffins freshly baked, their soups made in house !!! But times are changing and so are places!! Still ,Wave Hill is here to stay ,to accompany many generations in their stroll through peacefulness!
