Park · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
Tibbetts Brook Park is a 161-acre (65 ha) park located in the Lincoln Park section of Yonkers in Westchester County, New York. Opened in 1927, it was one of the first developed parks in Westchester County and currently serves residents with activities that include swimming, hiking, sports, nature watching and fishing.
The park was named for George Tibbetts, a Briton who had settled the land in 1668.

Tibbetts is bordered by the Cross County Parkway to the north, Saw Mill River Parkway to the west, McLean Avenue to the south and Midland Avenue to the East. Tibbetts Brook Park is .6 miles (1 km) north of Van Cortlandt Park along South County Trailway, and Tibbetts Brook crosses north-south through the park on its way to the Harlem River.

The park is the home ground of the New York Magpies in the USAFL.

  • What a fun day we had at the water park! It was clean, well kept, and well run. I couldn't believe you could get in for $15 and have a water park experience. It is not as big as some way outside the city, but what you get for being so close and avoiding long travel days was great. We didn't drive so we did not have to pay for parking fees. It was quiet around 12 on a Sunday and started to pick up at 1:30ish but was still not bad. We'll be back next summer.
  • Last time I was here I was 12yrs old now I’m 34yrs old. I finally went 2 weeks ago, they fixed the place up it looks better than it did years ago. My son loves it and has been going non stop.
  • I enjoy myself with my family today. Especially the kiddie pool with my 2 year old son. He enjoyed himself as well as I. I recommend this place if you have a family or just yourself. Have fun and enjoy yourself. Thanks Tibbett park!
  • This place is a hidden gem in Yonkers. On hot summer days when you need a pool to relax in? This is the place. And it’s not just your average pool, it’s moreso a lazy river type of pool with many floaties. I’ve celebrated my son’s birthday here several times, and it’s not expensive at all. I honestly think everyone should give this place a go to understand.
  • Clean park, staff is super helpful. Downside is you have to be a Westchester county member in order to come in. Coolers need to be small and fit into a measuring basket they have before you enter the park. Small children can be giving a loaner life vest in exchange for a temporary hold on ID.
