It’s called the Greenbelt, but it’s (happily) outgrown its belt shape.  2,800 acres of green space stretched out and through the heart of Staten Island compose the vast area known as the Greenbelt.  That’s 2,800 acres of hiking, fishing, birding, golf, archery, biking, baseball, and endless other options for amusing oneself.  

The Greenbelt rivals a college campus with its plethora of educational structures and settings.  To name a few, High Rock Environmental Center, Greenbelt Native Plant Center, Greenbelt  Recreation Center, and William T. Davis Wildlife Refuge enthrall and teach visitors on a constant basis.

Step into a woodland, meadow, or field and slowly begin tightening your grip on the Greenbelt.
