The two nature centers in Rye that were closed to the public during the height of the pandemic and are now open Tuesday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., then Monday through Friday beginning Monday, June 28th. One household allowed in at a time and face masks must be worn. Call ahead to confirm your visit.

Rye is fortunate to have two of the County’s six Nature Centers:

  • Edith G. Read Wildlife Sanctuary, behind Playland, (914) 967-8720
  • Marshlands Conservancy, on the Boston Post Road, (914) 835-4466

Rye Guy and County Executive George Latimer said: “Westchester County Parks offers over 18,000 acres of parkland with beautiful nature preserves for residents to learn about and explore. I’m thrilled for the reopening of these facilities.”
