Macy VE Park, Hartsdale

in Parks/Outdoor

287 Ridge Rd, Hartsdale, NY 10530, (914) 946-8133
This 172 acre park is centrally located in the county and a perfect spot for group picnics.  A section of V.E. Macy Park has been renamed so that the history of the Irish who fled to Westchester in the 1840s to escape poverty and famine will never be forgotten. The Great Hunger Memorial was unveiled on June 24, 2001 at V.E. Macy Park in Ardsley to commemorate the suffering of millions of Irish immigrants who died from the potato famine or were forced to leave their country.  The monument was created by Eamonn O’Doherty.
