While Staten Island’s South Shore contains a lot of parkland, much of it is natural areas not suited for active recreational use. In an effort to address the issue, this longstanding natural area was targeted for recreational park development in the early 2000s.
The site was transferred from the NYC Department of Citywide Administrative Services to NYC Parks in 2003. Construction began in 2019 to turn this underutilized parcel into a sprawling green space with baseball and multipurpose fields, courts for pickleball, tennis, bocce, an ADA-compliant trail, a comfort station, and a picnic area.
Fairview Park is also the new home of John D'Amato Field, formerly in New Dorp Park. The original field, dedicated in 2011 to Staten Island attorney, community leader and athlete John D'Amato (1955-2007) was damaged by flood waters from Superstorm Sandy in 2012.
