Visit the Greenburgh Nature Center

The Greenburgh Nature Center is a hidden oasis just off Scarsdale’s Central Avenue. We offer a bounty of green space, walking trails for all ages and abilities, a lively playground, and memorable animals and educational exhibits.  Our grounds delight visitors of all ages.

Please respect the preserve by being mindful of marked receptacles for waste management.  While we love animals, note that dogs are not allowed on the property.

The grounds of the Nature Center are open daily from dawn to dusk.

Weekdays: 9:30am-4:30pm (Closed Fridays) // Weekends: 10am-4:30pm

The GNC offers special programming on weekends and drop-in classes on weekdays. Our educational programming is a great opportunity for school groups and special interest groups.  For more information, see our Calendar of Events and Education.

To best accommodate larger groups, we require groups of 15 or more to call in advance and schedule their visit. Certain fees will apply. Groups ranging in size from 15 to 30 cost $100 and groups of 31 to 60 cost is $200. Call 914-723-3470 to schedule your visit.
