The signature annual event at Freshkills Park, Sneak 'Peak' is a festival unlike any other. The site is normally closed throughout the year as we continue park development and construction, but once a year we throw open the gates and hold a celebration! Join us to celebrate the potential of the future of Freshkills Park with a day of fun with activities like kayaking, biking, birding, public art, puppetry workshop, walking tours, climbing walls, an informational fair, and kite flying, all of which offer a glimpse of what the park will have to offer. Last year 3,500 people joined us for the celebration of Staten Island's newest jewel of parkland - this year promises to be bigger and better than ever!

Visit nyc.gov/sneakpeak to find out more! Parking for the festival will be available at 250 Wild Avenue, behind the Showplace Bowling Alley off of Victory Blvd. Free shuttles will run to the festival from the Staten Island Ferry, just hop off the ferry and on to a direct shuttle right to the celebration without any hassle! Alternatively, the s62 bus runs down Victory Blvd. to the park.

Start time: 11:00 am

End time: 4:00 pm
