Landon and I discovered our new favorite place: the Greenburgh Nature Center!
On Saturday, they offered a “Fairy and Troll Nature Walk,” which sounded like fun.
I had been wanting to check out the Greenburgh Nature Center for a while, so we drove there after L read to our library dog in the morning.
The Center is located off of Central Park Avenue in Scarsdale/White Plains (99 Dromore Road, Scarsdale, NY 10583) and easy to miss, but after you park and walk up the hill to it, you immediately see that this place is special.
It’s an oasis in the city, and just beautiful!

We paid for our entry and met up with all the other kids and parents that were there for this event.
The kids were encouraged to dress up, and there were some cute fairies running around! L decided to use his sweater as a “cape.”
The young lady who lead the walk really got the kids interested in looking for fairies and trolls. She encouraged them to pick flowers and make a fairy crown, and L and I rigged one up for him. He looked adorable.
We saw huge spiders, pet an iguana and chinchilla, and saw the most awesome little owl.
We’ll definitely go back to get pictures with them. Back outside, we also checked out the bee hives, the stage, birds of prey, and the bunnies, chicken, goat, and sheep at the barnyard.
The Greenburgh Nature Center is wonderful for family fun. You could spend all day there and bring a picnic lunch, or come for one of their many special events.
We can’t wait to go back. They are opening their “Walk Among Live Butterflies Exhibit” on June 27 !
Have you ever been to the Greenburgh Nature Center, or do you have a similar place in your area?
