Wave Hill is a spectacular public garden and cultural center overlooking the majestic Hudson River and Palisades in the Riverdale section of the Bronx. Its mission is to celebrate the artistry and legacy of its gardens and landscapes, to preserve its magnificent views, and to explore human connections to the natural world through programs in horticulture, education and the arts.
