Shearing of the Heathers

The three-acre Heather Garden is the site of our annual rite of spring – the Shearing of the Heather parade and community celebration in Fort Tryon Park.

Bring your musical instruments and join in our community parade through the Heather Garden led by traditional bagpipers. Learn why Fort Tryon Park has the largest heath and heather collection in the northeast. Make flower-themed crafts, take home your own propagated heathers, get your face painted, and celebrate spring while enjoying the garden’s beauty and panoramic views of the Hudson River and Palisades! Fun for all ages!
