At 2,200 acres, Freshkills Park will be almost three times the size of Central Park and the largest park developed in New York City in over 100 years. The transformation of what was formerly the world’s largest landfill into a productive and beautiful cultural destination will make the park a symbol of renewal and an expression of how our society can restore balance to its landscape. In addition to providing a wide range of recreational opportunities, including many uncommon in the city, the park’s design, ecological restoration and cultural and educational programming will emphasize environmental sustainability and a renewed public concern for our human impact on the earth.

The Freshkills Park tour will depart from the St. George Ferry Terminal in Staten Island, and will take you by bus to see behind the scenes at Freshkills Park. Freshkills Park staff will be on hand to guide you through the history of the site as the Fresh Kills Landfill and share with you the development of new capital programs at Freshkills as part of the Draft Master Plan for the site designed by James Corner Field Operations. The tour lasts roughly one and a half hours and will return to the ferry.

Please sign up for this tour on the Freshkills Park Events Page. Email freshkillspark@parks.nyc.gov with questions. There is limited space on this tour, registration is required.

Seven years ago, the city launched the MillionTreesNYC initiative with an ambitious goal: to plant and care for one million new trees across the city.

The benefits to be gained were clear: improved air and water quality; reduced pollution from storm water runoff, flooding and erosion; and reduced energy costs, to name a few.

Since 2007, we have come a long way towards reaching our goal of planting one million trees, and we are confident that we will get there.

We invite you to join us this spring to plant trees at Jones Woods Park in Staten Island!

Registration is required
