The first-ever Greenbelt Outdoor Adventure Day will give New Yorkers the chance to try outdoor activities of all kinds and experience Staten Island’s vast Greenbelt—a network of lush parks, wetlands and hiking trails, often referred to as the city’s hidden jewel. This inaugural event is being held by the Greenbelt Conservancy in partnership with NYC Parks, and is funded by the New York City Council as part of the “A Greener NYC” initiative.
- Canoeing with Urban Park Rangers
- Fishing with the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation
- Hiking with Greenbelt Education staff
- Live birds of prey demonstrations
- Survival skills workshop
The NYC Parks Fitness Mobile and Play Mobile will also be on site offering outdoor games and activities.
The Greenbelt spans 2,800 acres, including New York City’s largest remaining forest preserve and more than 35 miles of marked hiking trails. The trail system traverses diverse ecosystems and offers visitors a refuge from the hustle and bustle of daily life.
