Lyndhurst and RiverWalk Park

With easy access from the Old Croton Aqueduct Trail, Lyndhurst estate has a spectacular Gothic Revival Mansion (admission fee) and seasonal rose garden overlooking the Hudson River in Tarrytown, New York. Designed in 1838 by Alexander Jackson Davis, its architectural brilliance is complemented by the park-like landscape of the estate and a comprehensive collection of original decorative arts. Its noteworthy occupants included: former New York City mayor William Paulding, merchant George Merritt, and railroad tycoon Jay Gould.

At the foot of the Lyndhurst Estate is access to a newly-opened section of the Hudson Riverwalk, with scenic views of the Hudson, the new Mario Cuomo Bridge, waterfalls and interpretive signage.

Lyndhurst is about 3.5 miles north of the Keeper's House in Dobbs Ferry on the trail and about 1.6 miles north of the Irvington MTA station.

Friends of the Old Croton Aqueduct

Take an after-lunch stroll on the Aqueduct Trail. Meet at Irvington’s Town Hall at 85 Main Street, less than ½ mile east up Main Street from the Irvington Metro-North train station. Visit the Tiffany Reading Room, one of a handful of Tiffany interiors. Meander north on the Old Croton Aqueduct Trail (which intersects with Main Street) to Lyndhurst and back, admiring architectural landmarks, including the skeletal remains of a Lord & Burnham conservatory, and Hudson River views. Learn the history of the Old Croton Aqueduct and the millionaires who lived along the Trail in the 1800’s. Four miles and 3-4 hours. When you return to Main Street, if you would like to see more, you may choose to continue your walk south (and back) on the Aqueduct to view more historic mansions.

Required: pre-registration (limited number); masks and social distancing.

Walk will be rescheduled if weather does not cooperate.
