Jay Meadow & Park Grounds
Open from dawn to dusk all year round (excluding fenced in areas). There are also QR signs around the property outside. Hold your phone up to the markers to take a photo and a weblink should pop up on your screen automatically. One can follow the mown grass path path behind the Jay Mansion, to the neighboring park at Marshlands Conservancy and down to the water – see two parks in one day!
(Please note that dogs are allowed on leash at the Jay Estate but NO DOGS are allowed at Marshlands which is a separate Westchester County park).
