This project will construct a 3.2 mile multi-use path running along the edges of Freshkills Park, William T. Davis Wildlife Refuge and La Tourette Park. It will provide pedestrians and bicyclists with both a recreational amenity and a safe travel alternative to the street. Commuters and recreational users traveling along Park Drive North, Travis Avenue and Richmond Avenue, will enjoy the opportunity to overlook and enjoy the parks’ features and natural ecosystems.
