Irvington, Westchester County, NY
hoped to be 400 acres (combining Westwood with adjacent village and county land)


just south of Taxter Ridge


The land is currently owned by developers who have given the village of Irvington an option to buy.  Efforts are ongoing to get the necessary monies together. 

Irvington hopes to convert a village-owned house on the property into a nature center.


It is hoped that a number of parks can be linked in a corridor running parallel to the Hudson River that would be the largest parks and open space corridor in southern Westchester.  This would secure 700 contiguous acres.  The parks involved would be: East Irvington Nature Preserve, Irvington's Reservoir Park, V.E. Macy Park, Taxter Ridge and Westwood.
