The Rock Garden
The Rock Garden was a naturalistic tumble of stones flanking a tiny stream running through it. Buried under soil and vegetation for years, it was uncovered due to the work of gardener Timothy Tilghman and the Yonkers Parks Department crew working at Untermyer Park. Stone paths wind uphill, crossing the stream several times on rock bridges. A small seating area with a curved stone bench sits partway up the hill. There are many views of it from the 1930s in the Smithsonian archives.
Restoration of the Rock Garden was begun in 2018 and will continue in 2019 with extensive plantings.
