MOUNT KISCO, N.Y. — Make plans now for next Halloween and visit the home and grounds of Judy and Michael Steinhardt.

The 58-acre estate decorated with ghouls and goblins is filled with unusual plants, trees and exotic animal attractions. But it’s only open to the public on Halloween and one day in the spring. The other openings are for fundraising events.

On Halloween, people have the opportunity to experience animals such as huge dromedaries, wallabies, kangaroos, pink flamingos, llamas, zebras and more. The animals roam safely behind fencing, while onlookers get up-close and personal.

As guests wander the hilly grounds on Halloween, ghosts float from the many unusual trees, and witches poke up and around the award-winning plants.

Judy and Michael Steinhardt estate has been written about in numerous publications and are considered a "must see" in the garden world. Friend Martha Stewart calls it "an exotic wonderland."
