This unique patch of greenery in Staten Island is many things to many people. With protected space for wildlife alongside its variety of recreational facilities, Willowbrook is one of Staten Island's most popular Greenbelt parks.

With its sylvan expanses, Willowbrook offers a wonderful chance to escape into a more peaceful setting. Hikers explore its woods, while many species of birds take advantage of the five-acre lake to nest and eat and do other avian activities.

Amusements for people include tennis courts, playgrounds, ballfields, hiking, and an archery range, which provides a perfect opportunity for those wishing to reenact their favorite scenes from Robin Hood. One of its most unique draws is the Carousel for All Children, a handicap-accessible merry-go-round on which 51 hand-carved wooden animals circle panels depicting Staten Island scenes.
