Photographer's Note

Bronx River Parkway Preserve in Scarsdale New York.

When the Bronx River Parkway Reservation opened to the public in 1925, it was the beginning
of a policy of land acquisition for recreational purposes that has become a hallmark for
the quality of life in Westchester over the decades and is acknowledged to be one of the
finest in the country. County stewardship has allowed, the Westchester County parks system
to grow to encompass more than 16,000 acres. Since 1961 as the Department of Parks,
Recreation and Conservation, this system includes more than 40 parks and facilities and
includes five golf courses, six pools, three beaches, four trailways, six nature centers,
an early-1900s interpretive farm, a 117-year-old lighthouse, and a developing arboretum.
Within the Reservation is the Bronx River Pathway, a paved trail that follows original
paths adjoining the parkway. Thousands of walkers, skaters, joggers and bicyclists
navigate this scenic route for health and exercise as well as through varied programs, and
entertainment sponsored by the Department Parks Recreation & Conservation.
On Sundays, except holidays, during May, June and September, the Bronx River Parkway
closes to automobile traffic from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for 揃ike and Skate Sundays program.
The free 揅oncerts in the Park series runs every Bicycle Sunday at the Governor Malcolm
Wilson Park, located on the southern portion of the reservation in Yonkers.
From noon to 1 p.m., a variety of music groups from the Westchester Conservatory
in White Plains perform music ranging from classical jazz and Dixieland, to baroque and
New Age fare. The Department of Parks Recreation & Conservation and the Bronx River
Parkway Reservation Conservancy, Inc. together are working to insure the survival and
growth of the rich diversity of flora and fauna thriving in the Reservation
