Lyndhurst Mansion Design & Build Weekend
Saturday, April 29 & Sunday, April 30, 10am-4pm
One of Lyndhurst’s most popular family programs returns this spring to once again bring fun, dynamic activities to kids interested in architecture, engineering, and design. Children and adults are invited to join in the creation of a 3D-village using recycled boxes and supplies. We’ll need houses, shops, schools, hospitals, taverns and more. Then put the structures together to make an entire Gothic Revival style village. Held outdoors in the carriage house courtyard, this activity gets kids to practice problem solving, basic city planning and architectural concepts, and above all, creativity. Many more activities planned, more info here. Lyndhurst, also known as the Jay Gould estate, is a Gothic Revival country house that sits in its own 67-acre park beside the Hudson River in Tarrytown, NY.
