What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The Untermyer Gardens Conservancy was founded in 2011 to revitalize and improve Untermyer Gardens, which had been called the most spectacular garden in America before suffering a long period of severe decline. It works in partnership with the City of Yonkers, which owns the garden, and has thus far completed the restoration of eight distinct garden areas. The Conservancy is dedicated to completing the restoration of the garden's historic architecture and garden areas while designing innovative new natural spaces and strengthening its commitment to ecological responsibility and community service.
