On Your Visit
Teatown’s Visitor Center hosts a number of exhibits that teach our community about our local wildlife.
This unique sanctuary, home to over 230 native and endangered species of wildflowers, is only available to the public through guided tours.
Cindy’s Garden is an educational sensory garden. All are invited in to smell a leaf, watch a butterfly, compose a journal entry, listen to the insects’ conversations, or simply relax and let nature come to you.
Stop at the Visitors Center to grab a map of the trails, shop at the Nature Store, visit our exhibits and take a rest after a long hike.
