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 108 years. Please meet at the Fort Tryon Park Cottage, on the southwest corner of Margaret Corbin Circle, across the crosswalk at the north end of Javits Playground. For Heather Garden tours go to the stone pillars.
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.
