Larger than Central Park, Van Cortlandt Park is an outdoor lover’s dream as it offers a lake, wooded hiking trails, and bike paths. And, the popular Wave Hill Park is just one mile away from the RiverSpring Living campus.

Arts & Culture

You might be surprised to learn that New York City’s rich history and legacy overlaps with that of Riverdale. Some of the city’s most famous names lived in Riverdale.

For starters, Wave Hill has been the home of American icons such as Mark Twain and Theodore Roosevelt. Built in 1836, the Greek Revival Manor hosts a botanical garden, art galleries, and live performances. The nearby Van Cortlandt house is the oldest house in the Bronx and was used by George Washington as a base during the American Revolutionary War. Now a museum, the house boasts a collection of furniture and art including heirlooms of the Van Cortlandt family.

The Henry Hudson Monument towers over the Henry Hudson Park and was built to commemorate the English explorer who the historic river is named after. Finally, Bell Tower Park offers a historic experience like none other. The Memorial Bell Tower was built in 1930 to commemorate World War I veterans from Riverdale, Spuyten Duyvil, and Kingsbridge.
