Mission Statement

A 28-acre public garden and cultural center overlooking the Hudson River and Palisades, Wave Hill’s mission is to celebrate the artistry and legacy of its gardens and landscapes, to preserve its magnificent views, and to explore human connections to the natural world through programs in horticulture, education and the arts.

Description

Often called "one of the greatest living works of art," Wave Hill is a spectacular public garden and cultural center overlooking the majestic Hudson River and Palisades in the Riverdale neighborhood of the Bronx. This gem of a destination evokes the sense of a private country estate, while the artistry of the gardens, the range of programs that complement it and the vibrant exhibitions mounted spring, summer and fall in Glyndor Gallery, encourage visitors to explore this serene setting. Historic Wave Hill House, recently renovated, is a focal point for visitors, and houses The Café. Wave Hill offers an ideal and serene respite from the energy and distractions of the workday world. Wave Hill, Inc. is an independent, non-profit cultural institution governed by a volunteer Board of Directors whose buildings and grounds are owned by the City of New York.

its just a beautiful serene place. The gardens and grounds are beautiful. I would like to do some volunteer work there. The gift shop is beautiful, and i come from the world of high end retail.
