Tree-lined streets, leafy parks and handsome historic homes give Ardsley a family-friendly feel. The village is just 30 kilometres from Downtown New York but feels worlds away from the bright lights and busy streets of the “Big Apple”.
Centrally located, V. E. Macy Park is dotted with shady picnic spots and playgrounds. In winter, the lake transforms into a magical outdoor ice skating rink. The South County Trailway starts in the park and meanders for 22 kilometres across Westchester County. Geared towards pedestrians and cyclists, it’s great for stretching your legs and enjoying the scenery.
From bakeries and bagel shops to Mexican restaurants and American-style diners, you’ll find some great places to fuel up in Ardsley. Find even more options in Dobbs Ferry, a picturesque village just west of Ardsley. It’s set on the banks of the Hudson River and will charm you with its grassy waterfront and a bustling main street lined with cafes and boutiques.
Ardsley is pedestrian-friendly and easy to get around on foot. Rental cars offer the freedom to explore Westchester County at your own pace. To get to Manhattan, take the bus to Scarsdale Station on the Harlem Line and ride the train to Grand Central Station.
