About this Event

A thousand acres of ridges and valleys, a quiet oak forest teeming with wildlife, 300 hundred years of historic remnants and artifacts...this might seem like a scene from a fictional novel, but it's very much a reality, waiting for you at the end of the 1 train in our northern-most borough.

Join New York Adventure Club for an exploration of Van Cortlandt Park in the Bronx, New York City's third largest park (1146 acres) that's home to the country's first public golf course, the oldest house in the Bronx, and the borough's largest freshwater lake.

Led by licensed tour guide and neighborhood expert Kyle Sallee, our unique neighborhood experience will include:

 

  • An overview of Van Cortlandt Park throughout the past 300 years, from its origins as a wheat plantation to becoming the third largest park in NYC
  • A stop at the the hidden Van Cortlandt cemetery on Vault Hill along with the historic Van Cortlandt House — the oldest surviving building in the Bronx
  • A walk along Old Putnam Trail to see railroad remnants of the decommissioned commuter line, and a stop at thirteen stone slabs in the woods that relate to the construction of Grand Central Terminal
  • A look at the oldest public golf course in America
  • A stop in front of Lloyd's Carrot Cake, one of New York's best places for many varieties of carrot cake

 

Our experience will conclude outside of Tortoise & Hare, which will have food and drinks available for purchase!
