Explore the world’s largest landfill-to-park project at this free event! Discovery Day is a one-day opportunity to visit normally closed sections of Freshkills Park before they open to the public.
Discover the 2,200-acre park’s rolling hills and views of New York City with bicycling, tours, activities, and hiking across miles of trails.
Shuttles will make trips to and from the Staten Island Ferry Terminal.
Parking will be available in the lots near 350 Wild Avenue, just outside the Freshkills Park Event Entrance. From there, visitors can take a free shuttle bus or walk or bike one mile to the main event area. A free shuttle will make trips to and from the Staten Island Ferry Terminal in St. George (Ramp E, Taxi Stand) during the event.
