Bronxville, NY

 

Bronxville can be found in Eastchester town in New York. It is approximately 15 miles to the north of bustling midtown Manhattan. Bronxville sits on more than 70 acres of parkland, which includes woodlands, athletic fields and a small portion of the Bronx River Parkway Reservation.

 

The Reservation is the oldest park in Westchester. It was opened in 1925 as an extension to the Bronx River Parkway. The Reservation, owned by the Westchester County, is the first linear park in the country. It features charming wooden footbridges, beautiful ponds and a wide array of native flora.

The park is a popular venue for walking, running, bicycling and nature watching and study.


Also in the village of Bronxville is the Bronxville School, which is ranked annually as one of the top public schools in the United States. In the 1920s, the school was opened as a progressive educational facility.
The school’s athletic fields include a running track, a football field and three smaller fields.

 

Scout Field, located in Mount Vernon and in Yonkers, is controlled by Bronxville, and is often used for the Bronxville School’s soccer, baseball, football and cross-country running events. Scout Field, like the Reservation, is a Westchester Country park.
