Dobbs Ferry

Small-town charm mixed with suburban convenience.

Welcome to Dobbs Ferry

Dobbs Ferry is a 3.17 square-mile village. Home to just over 11,000 people, this friendly community features parks, restaurants, and nightlife opportunities. Highly rated schools (which includes the International Baccalaureate Program) and outdoor recreation are among the highlights of this village, attracting families, singles and nature enthusiasts. 

Spending time outdoors is a typical pastime in Dobbs Ferry. Juhring Nature Preserve is the largest park in Dobbs Ferry, offering 76 acres of stunning open-air space fit for picnicking, biking, walking, and relaxation. 

The Dobbs Ferry Waterfront Park boasts a fishing pier, covered stage, playground, exercise equipment, picnic area, and washrooms. During the summer months it hosts outdoor musical concerts and events.

Memorial Park and Gould Park also offer various activities for athletic locals. Memorial Park has a playground, wading pool, bocce ball court and basketball court. Gould Park has athletic fields, as well as a community swimming pool.

Dobbs Ferry is also home to the Ardsley Country Club, founded in the 1800s. Among its amenities are a golf course, pool and tennis courts.

Most dining and nightlife opportunities are found on Cedar Street and Main Street. Half Moon restaurant sits next to the Dobbs Ferry Waterfront Park and provides scenic and expansive views of the Hudson River and Palisades. 

Sam’s Italian Restaurant is a local icon that has been in business for almost 70 years. They serve authentic Italian food, as well as a seemingly endless selection of pizza.

Sushi Mike’s is consistently listed among the best sushi restaurants in Westchester and also features a robust menu of Japanese dishes.

One of Dobbs Ferry’s most recent entries is Climbing Wolf, which offers a specialty coffee and craft beer bar (tea too!) 

You will always find a crowd at Doubledays, where people gather for a relaxing drink, lunch or dinner, or to enjoy whatever game is airing at the moment. When the weather’s nice, you can enjoy their outside beer garden.

And don’t forget dessert. Check out Go Greenly for frozen yogurt, or Frankie’s Homemade Ice Cream located within The Brick Oven Pizza Shop (another good place to stop in for a slice).

All of this and more can be found in Dobbs Ferry, so you’re sure to live a leisurely lifestyle filled with good eats and outdoor recreation.
