Saturday, October 22, 2016 Untermyer Park and Garden: Tour and Woodland Clean Up Project
Please join alums & families to tour and help at the Untermyer Gardens.
In 1916, Sam Untermyer commissioned Beaux-Arts architect, William Bosworth ( MIT, Arch, 1889) to design the structures and garden as a Persian garden of Eden. In the 1920s it was considered the “America’s Most Spectacular Garden”. Bosworth had just completed the Rockefeller gardens at Kykuit and also supervised the construction of the campus of MIT (buildings 1, 2, 3, 4, 8, 10 and later 5, Walker Memorial, and the President’s house). After Untermyer’s death, the Untermyer garden/Greystone estate was too large for NY State to maintain. The Garden Conservancy and the City of Yonkers are restoring it.
Please wear garden shoes, long pants and bring gloves - we will also have them available. We will tour the gardens and then work on the woodlands garden near the back entrance. Please join us for any part of the day.
Register here or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Date and Time: Oct 22, 10am-2pm
