Vanderbilt Mansion Landscape and Garden Tours
Hyde Park Vanderbilt Mansion Free Tours - Free grounds tours offered by the National Park Service and park partner, the Frederick W. Vanderbilt Garden Association. On the 3rd Sunday each month, meet at the Vanderbilt Mansion visitor parking area for a tour led by an NPS Ranger. Visitors may join FWVGA volunteers between 1pm and 3:30pm for an additional 30 minute tour.
Interpreter-guides discuss the history of the gardens, Vanderbilt ownership, and the ongoing work by the Vanderbilt Garden Association, which was formed in 1984 to rehabilitate and maintain the garden plantings.
