Dutch Gardens:
New City, NY

Located right near the court house in New City, Dutch Gardens is a small tranquil area. A great place to just sit and relax or walk through the paths. Although the garden does not feel big at all, it actually is 3 acres and extends past the actual garden area.

There is a brick teahouse with a fireplace right by the entrance across the parking lot. There is a variety of seasonal flowers sprinkled between the paths, and​  benches around the garden.

At the far end there is a brick Gazebo. If you followed​ the path down you woul​d reach the Demarest Kill Stream which separates the park from the rear of the County Office parking lot.

The park has a rich history:​i​t was constructed in 1934-36 as a memorial to the early Dutch settlers. Between 1935 and 1968 the park won some design contests. Today the park design and upkeep is not especially pretty but it is a nice quiet place to relax.
