Special Feature: A new structure is located near the Wightman Mansion for visitors to place ribbons on in memory of loved ones. The exhibit on the Main Floor of the County Office Building at 148 Martine Avenue in White Plains remains on display to the public during normal business hours.

Highlights include:

  • Nature Center
  • Butterfly Garden (Seasonal)

Every spring and autumn, bird watchers gather to observe major hawk migrations. Nature enthusiasts can learn about raptor identification markings, such as flight patterns and silhouettes, and can take part in official tracking counts of raptors.

In summer, the butterfly garden is at its height, visited by a wide variety of butterflies. Nearby, a dragonfly pond provides the necessary habitat for numerous aquatic insects and attracts birds and other wildlife.

The Nature Center houses many different nature exhibits.

Trails are open every day from sunrise to sunset.
