2016 Yonkers Day
On a beautiful day in September, Untermyer Park and Gardens was the site of an afternoon of free tours, refreshments, and live jazz in the Walled Garden. Visits to the garden are always free to the public, and on this day residents of Yonkers were invited to enjoy free lemonade and cookies, and jazz by the Victor LaGamma Trio in the restored amphitheater of the Walled Garden. Special 40-minute tours of the spectacular gardens and their unique history began at 2:20 p.m. at the concession table and ran every thirty minutes, revealing the on-going restoration efforts that are making Untermyer one of the most spectacular gardens in America, right here in Yonkers. The event was sponsored by the Untermyer Gardens Conservancy.
