Important Winter Storm-Related Service Changes

New York City parks are now open. We continue to urge caution in parks under wintry conditions: parks paths can be slippery, snow cover can cover frozen lakes and bodies of water, and branches may have fallen. If you see a fallen branch call 311.

Some recreation centers will open from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. today with limited staffing.

For more information, please visit our Storm Update page.

Blood Root Valley

Rockland Ave., Manor Ave., Brielle Ave., Forest Hill Rd.

Staten Island

Directions via Google Maps

It’s called the Greenbelt, but it’s (happily) outgrown its belt shape.  2,800 acres of green space stretched out and through the heart of Staten Island compose the vast area known as the Greenbelt.  That’s 2,800 acres of hiking, fishing, birding, golf, archery, biking, baseball, and endless other options for amusing oneself.  

The Greenbelt rivals a college campus with its plethora of educational structures and settings.  To name a few, High Rock Environmental Center, Greenbelt Native Plant Center, Greenbelt  Recreation Center, and William T. Davis Wildlife Refuge enthrall and teach visitors on a constant basis.

Step into a woodland, meadow, or field and slowly begin tightening your grip on the Greenbelt.
