  • Note: The gardens are closed for the winter. They will reopen again in March. Finally open again after several years of renovation. Free and open to the public on weekends 10am to 4pm. Looks the same except for a few new sculptures. I visited on the first weekend in April and most of the plants are a few weeks away from blooming. Very pleasant to walk around the grounds and enjoy the art and nature. 5 picnic benches available where you may eat.
  • What a playful sculpture garden! You will experience works created by renowned kinetic art sculptors such as Alexsander Calder, George Rickey, Kenneth Nelson... Kids friedly. Make sure you download the Sculpture Garden App.
  • So the gardens where closed for some time for renovations finally opened up which is great however we didn't notice much changes a few new sculptures and basically everything else is the same. It is a lovely place to take a walk but the requirements to get in are a bit to much we had to show ids just to get in and park.
  • I've loved this place since I was a kid. The building and grounds are spectacular. So I was really excited that the interminable closure for renovations is finally over and took my daughter for the first time in her life. Everything looks mostly the same. A few sculptures have been relocated. The Edward Durell Stone building is as crisp and clean as always. The plantings are all well maintained, although the lily reflecting pools were a little messy the day we were there. Seeing the sculptures again after so long brought back many memories. At this point they feel like old friends. This is definitely one of the best places to see art in Westchester County (and it's free!).
  • After a VERY long closure from "Storm Damage" it is finally back open! Just NOT to us animal lovers! Somebody decided dogs are now banned from enjoying their sculptures..... I had been coming here for years with my dog, there was never any droppings or damage caused by any animal. There was no reason to do this.
