Westchester Sketchers at Lasdon Park Thursday








Let's celebrate Spring by sketching at Lasdon Park and Arboretum. 
In this beautiful park, you'll find lots to sketch: flowering trees, spring flowers, orchids (in the glass conservatory), a historic tree walk, and much more.



The park contains woodlands, an open grass meadow, and formal gardens with flower and shrub specimens from all over the world. It also contains a Chinese Friendship Pavilion as gift from the People's Republic of China to the citizens of Westchester.

Lasdon Park also features the Westchester County Veterans Museum, with exhibits of photographs, historical documents, artifacts and memorabilia about Westchester County residents who served in the United States armed forces in time of war, from the Revolutionary War to the present. In addition to the museum, there are four memorials to Westchester residents who served in the military.
