Visitor Center

Stop at the Visitor Center to grab a map of the trails, shop at the Nature Store, visit our exhibits, and take a rest after a long hike. The Visitor Center is open to the public 7 days a week, 9am – 5pm.


Teatown’s Visitor Center hosts a number of exhibits that teach our community about our local wildlife.

Raptor Loop

Our non-releasable birds of prey include great horned owls, red-tailed hawks, and more.

Animal Ambassadors

Our animal ambassadors are non-releasable animals that serve to teach the public about our local wildlife. They include opossums, snakes, turtles, and more!

Wildflower Woods

Our outdoor classroom teaches visitors about healthy forests.

Hours & Parking

Open dawn to dusk, 365 days

To help manage increased visitation to our preserve, Teatown charges $7 to non-members for parking. Note that the parking kiosks can not provide change, so please pay with exact change or credit card. We appreciate our members, who will always park free.  Thank you for your understanding and support!

Teatown Lake Reservation’s Visitor Center is ADA accessible. Inside, you’ll find a variety of animals to meet, an art exhibit, the Nature Store, and seating. There are multiple parking spaces accessible per ADA standards.

At this time, our trails are not ADA compliant. We have plans in the works to create an ADA accessible Raptor Loop, playscape, and trail to the Boathouse along the Lakeside Trail. Stay tuned for progress updates.
