Land ho! Seaside Wildlife Nature Park is home to waterfront splendor, idyllic wildlife, and one of New York City's most inventive playgrounds.

The playground at Seaside Wildlife Nature Park is entirely nautical-themed, with a lighthouse, a shark to climb on, and play units that resemble the Staten Island Ferry. The centerpiece is a large shipwreck-themed play feature, perfect for exploration and imaginative play.

This playground is surrounded by nearly 20 acres of picturesque wilderness. Pathways will lead you through acres of native seaside and salt marsh plants that are hardy waterfront survivors, as well as nearby trees, shrubs, and local wildlife. Experience the Island as you've never seen it before!
