Go to Freshkills Park for an opportunity to discover the trails and hills of the landfill-to-park project! Freshkills Park is opening up the future North Park and miles of additional interior trails for walking, bicycling, jogging and exploring. Spectacular landscapes and panoramic views await you!
Kayak Staten Island will lead a free kayaking program from 11am – 3pm in the Fresh Kill and Main Creek waterways, bicycles will be available for riding around the trails, and a bus to the scenic overlook will run throughout the day. Visitors are encouraged to bring their cameras to photograph the park in progress, bring their walking shoes and water to hike the site, and to pack a picnic or get lunch from event food trucks.
Shuttles into the site will run continuously from parking at Wild Avenue to the creek of North Park, and on a scheduled basis from St. George Ferry Terminal. Visitors including bicycle riders and dog owners can enter the site directly at 350 Wild Avenue and do not need to take a shuttle.
All ages. Free. The site will be open from 11am-4pm with the last entrance at 3:30pm.
