Photography Permits

ANY professional photography in the park requires a permit from the park manager in advance of the desired date.

We need to know the date,  how many people are involved and what the nature of the photography is ( i.e. wedding  photo’s, prom, family, gardens, etc).  Permits are available Monday thru Friday by contacting the park manager directly at 914-864-7268 or via e-mail (  The fee is $50 between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.  If you desire to be after hours there is an additional fee of $50 per hour or portion thereof for overtime.

Fees will be refunded or an alternate date is arraigned due to weather or other reasonable circumstances ONLY if you call us before 4pm on the date of your permit.  The number to call on weekends only is 914-864-7264.  Checks are made payable to Westchester County (sorry no credit cards).  You must obtain your permit two days prior to your desired visit.  You must discuss permits involving the Conservatory with the manager.  Permits are issued via e-mail.
