Teatown is a 1000-acre nature preserve and education center with nearly 15 miles of hiking trails located in the Lower Hudson Valley. Our mission is to inspire our community to lifelong environmental stewardship.


* Parking Policy

$5 parking for non-members

The losses in revenue from both cancelling programming and closing our Visitor Center has done significant damage to Teatown’s finances. We appreciate your support, which is critical to our non-profit organization during this time. Parking tags are again required. Parking tags are required daily, from 9am to 5pm. Click here for more information on our parking policy. Members will always park for free at Teatown.


Teatown needs your support, now more than ever. To mitigate the transmission of COVID-19, we’ve had to close our Visitor Center and cancel programs, making it difficult for us to earn the revenue that funds our work. We welcome you to the preserve and ask you to please give a contribution today. Whether large or small, each donation will help support our staff, maintain our trails, and care for our wildlife ambassadors.
