Join us for a virtual walk to the top of North Mound at Freshkills Park. Celebrate National Virtual Vacation Day and travel to Freshkills Park, with the click of a button. Freshkills Park was once the site of the world’s largest landfill and is currently becoming a 2200-acre park, scheduled to be completed in 2036. Freshkills Park staff will take you behind the scenes to visit areas that are currently closed to the public. 

Our virtual walk will include:

  • An overview of Freshkills, from its days as the world's largest landfill to the planned three-phase transformation into a public park
  • Learning about the state-of-the-art landfill engineering system
  • Information on the different plants and animals found in the woods, wetlands, and grasslands at Freshkills Park.
  • Sweeping views of the NYC skyline from the top of North Mound
