Kenton Hall Neighborhood Garden

305 East 165th Street [map]
East Concourse, Bronx
Founded in 1981

Mature evergreen and deciduous trees and shrubs. Colorful floral display in summer. Wrought iron fencing. Vegetables, herbs, and fruit trees. Originally on public land, this garden opened in 1981 with funding from the Plant-A-Lot program. The property is now owned by the adjacent housing organization.




There’s nothing like coming out of the cavernous Union Square subway station to a canopy of tree branches covered in spring blossoms, the tents of the Greenmarket visible just beyond.

And then there’s the smell…strawberries.

Now you can make one of these delicious strawberry recipes!
