NYC Parks urges caution during the snow storm predicted for Monday afternoon through Tuesday evening. Heavy ice and snow can cause hazardous conditions in parks, including falling branches and treacherous frozen park paths. NYC Parks advises New Yorkers to avoid using parks until Wednesday morning, when we will provide an update on park conditions.

Arden Woods

Arthur Kill Rd., Arden Ave. and Halpin Ave.

Staten Island

Directions via Google Maps

To step into this vast forested area is to step out of New York City for a moment, and experience a part of Staten Island unchanged for hundreds of years. Arden Woods is New York City's largest wetlands, a rare example of untouched wilderness in one of the world's biggest cities.

Bird watchers 'flock' to the park to seek out the owls, hawks, and warblers that swoop among the tall trees, while salamanders, frogs, and small mammals can be seen on the ground and along the edges of the ponds. A hiking trail and several paths guide visitors in their explorations. With almost 200 undeveloped acres, Arden Woods is a perfect place to lose yourself for the day.
