Teatown Parking Policy

As a community-supported nonprofit, our environmental educational programming and preserve are largely funded by people like you.

To help offset increasing overhead costs, Teatown will charge $5 to non-members for parking, but only from Friday-Sunday and on holidays from Apr-Oct.

Members will always park free

We deeply appreciate the support of our members, who will always enjoy free parking at Teatown. Hang-tags will soon be available for members to pick up in the Nature Center.


We will soon be transitioning from manned stations to parking machines to help make parking simple and straightforward. Hang-tags will soon be available for members to pick up in the Nature Center. Stay tuned!


Why does Teatown charge for parking?

Teatown has a greater impact than ever before. We now protect over 1,000 acres and reach over 20,000 individuals a year with our environmental education programming. But this impact comes at a cost.

The costs of hiring staff to manage the preserve and educate our community, improvements to our facilities, and care for the non-releasable wildlife that call Teatown home are significant for a non-profit of our size. As we grow, we hope that you will join us! Members will always park free of charge at Teatown. To become a member today, click here.

Frequently asked questions

What if I am here for a program or birthday party?
Temporary day-tags will be free and available for anyone participating in a Teatown nature program or birthday party. Visit the front desk to get your day pass.

Can I park on the road instead?
No, as these roads are extremely narrow and there is no shoulder, parking on Spring Valley or Blinn Road is prohibited.
