Outside of Westchester

Kitchawan Preserve, Ossining

    Kitchawan Preserve was previously a research station for the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens. It is now owned by the Westchester County Parks system and is located in Ossining bordering the Croton Reservoir.

    From the Taconic State Parkway, exit at NY Route 134 East. Continue on 134 East for 1.5 miles to the entrance on the left.
The Preserve shares a driveway with the Warren Institute, 712 Kitchawan Road.
Park in the first small lot. Do not trespass on the Institute's property or Watershed property.
Use extreme caution when exiting back onto Route 134 since the entrance/exit sits on an S curve.

For more information on the park check out Westchester County Park's Web Site
