A garden featuring plants named for every letter of the alphabet, many trails, a Chinese Peace Garden, a Veterans' Museum, well-labelled specimen trees - it's a pleasure for the eyes!
Also outdoor concerts in the summertime.

Drive by this place so many times never realizing it has such rich history. Cute museum on WW1 with a very knowledgeable curator. Arboretum worth the visit. Peaceful and tranquil.

Visited for their Halloween train show. A good place to visit with young kids. Easy to park and walk. A cute gift shop to visit too at the arboretum.

Although I know that a great deal of work has been put into upgrading Lasdon Park, it still has a kind of tired feel about it. The horticulture is standard fare and the gardens are somewhat tired, and lack any real surprises. The one area that looked most intriguing was all the way down by the road, and the sound of traffic was a bit of a turn off.

On the positive side, many of the trees are labeled, AND most important of all there is a brand new beautiful small conservatory. It is a lovely greenhouse and remembers a time when gardening was highly regarded.
The lawns provide a lot of space for picnics and for running around.

Lasdon Park and Arboretum is a lovely, relaxing and beautiful nature delight. The park itself has many walking trails, Westchester County Veterans Museum, beautiful seasonally blooming trees, bushes and, plantings.
The arboretum was recently opened and exhibits breathtaking tropical plants, waterfalls, rock formations and many types of growth. There are benches and walkways throughout.
Parking is plentiful and near the arboretum.
