What could be more fun than throwing axes at a wooden target to vent out your work frustrations? Nothing in our opinion :) PLEASE NOTE WE ARE DOING THIS EVENT AS WALK-INS. Monday to Thursday nights walk-ins pay $20.00. ABOUT AXE THROWING: The sport of axe throwing is a Canadian past time that’s becoming increasingly popular across the U.S., and now in Brooklyn, NY. Throwing hatchets is both fun and stress relieving at the same time, plus axe throwing is a great group activity whether it’s for corporate events, WHAT TO EXPECT: Bury the Hatchet’s warehouse-style space is expressly for ax-throwing. First, instructors lead one-on-one safety lessons before the 90-minute sessions get underway. Bury the Hatchet works tournament-style, letting groups of up to 12 players compete against each other in knockout rounds. Those who take a liking to the sport can go on to perfect their hatch-heaving skills in of Bury the Hatchet’s leagues. ABOUT BURY THE HATCHET: Afternoons throwing darts or playing shuffleboard are a thing of the past thanks to Bury The Hatchet, where visitors send 1.5-pound wood and metal hatchets whirling toward targets. Trained "throwing coaches" show groups how to safely handle the hatchets and throw them with accuracy before letting visitors loose to show off their skills. Group tournaments pit friends against friends in search of the elusive bullseye, with big-screen TVs to keep track of scores. No prior knowledge is necessary.

About Untermyer Park: Untermyer Park (also known as Untermyer Gardens, previously part of an estate known as Greystone) is a historic park of 43 acres, situated in Yonkers, just north of New York City, on a hillside above the Hudson River and features a rock garden, a "Grecian garden" (actually a Persian Paradise garden), a small Grecian-style amphitheater, a classical pavilion, pergola, statuary, and a view of the river. The Untermyer Gardens were developed during the first 40 years of the 20th century, when the area now enclosed by the park was part of an 150-acre site that was the estate of the lawyer and civic leader Samuel Untermyer. Set high above the Hudson on his former estate, they are one of the more fanciful and elaborate walled gardens ever planted in America. GETTING THERE: we'll meet at Grand Central to take the 12:20PM train to YONKERS. One-way off-peak ticket from GC to Yonkers is $8.25.
