Westchester Parks Foundation engages the public to advocate for and invest in the preservation, conservation, use and enjoyment of the 18,000 acres of parks, trails and open spaces within the Westchester County Parks system.
Did you know that the Westchester Parks Foundation has an audio tour of the Bronx River Parkway Reservation narrated by Dan Rather?
Click on the link below to see what it is all about. Even better, take the tour itself along the pathway and learn about all the natural and historical features of America's first limited access parkway.
PS. The Bronx River Parkway is a National Historic Landmark!
