Event Navigation

Here’s your chance to see inside of the Fort Tryon Park Cottage! The 1908 cottage flanking the Heather Garden was originally the gatehouse of the C.K.G Billings Estate and has retained its charm over its many uses in the last 110 years.

The Heather Garden is part of the larger Fort Tryon Park, which was donated to NYC in 1935 by John D. Rockefeller, Jr. and designed by the renowned Olmsted Brothers. It boasts over 500 varieties of plants, trees, and shrubs, and breathtaking views of the majestic New Jersey Palisades.
