The Bronx River Parkway Reservation, one of Westchester’s oldest parks, is an 807-acre paved linear park that was created as an adjunct to the Bronx River Parkway that opened in 1925.

The Reservation touts a number of firsts including:
  • First linear park in Westchester, as well as one of the first in the country, and, the Bronx River Parkway was the first parkway in the nation.

  • First official Westchester County Park, whose establishment led to the creation of today’s County Park System of more than 50 parks spanning nearly 18,000-acres.

The picturesque reservation, which runs through the heart of southern Westchester County, features ponds, wooden footbridges and hundreds of varieties of native trees and shrubs. It is a favorite place for bicycling, walking, running and nature study.

The Bronx River Pathway consists of three paved segments:

  • A one-mile loop near Oak Street in Mount Vernon
  • A 4.6-mile section from Palmer Road in Bronxville north to Crane Road in Scarsdale
  • A 5-mile section extending from Green Acres Avenue in Hartsdale to Kensico Dam Plaza in Valhalla
