At Freshkills Park's Discovery Day, 700 acres and eight miles of trails in the otherwise closed site will be open, providing opportunities to explore and learn about the world's largest landfill-to-park project.

Visitors of all ages can bring their own bicycle or borrow one at the park to bike across five miles of paved roadway, including a three-mile loop along meadows and wetland ponds. NYC Audubon, the Staten Island Greenbelt, and others will lead educational walking tours. Due to tide restrictions, kayaking will not be available at this event.

A free shuttle will make trips to and from the Staten Island Ferry Terminal in St. George (Ramp E, Taxi Stand) during the event. Parking will be just outside Freshkills Park in the lots near 350 Wild Avenue in Staten Island. From there, visitors can take a free shuttle bus or walk or bike one mile to the main event area.

Presented by NYC Parks, NYC Department of Sanitation, and the Freshkills Park Alliance.

About Freshkills Park
At 2,200 acres, Freshkills Park is almost three times the size of Central Park and the largest park to be developed in New York City in over 100 years. It also has a significant history as the site of the former Fresh Kills Landfill, which was the largest landfill in the world before closing in 2001. Since then, the landfill has been covered with layers of soil and infrastructure, and the site has become a place for wildlife, recreation, science, education, and art. As the park is built in phases, free tours and events provide early access for learning and exploration opportunities.

Join the mailing list and follow @freshkillspark on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for more details. For information about volunteering at the event, email fkpvolunteers@parks.nyc.gov.

Come learn about Jane Jacobs and how her influence spread beyond Manhattan, and inspired environmental restoration and neighborhood revitalization efforts in the Bronx.

Like Jane Jacobs, Bronx activists had to deal with Moses’ expressway and auto-oriented plans. Moses was even more dismissive of Bronx neighborhoods than of SoHo or the West Village, but in the 1960s the Bronx hadn’t developed the clout with which to force a rerouting of the Cross-Bronx Expressway (which we see in the distance)–but this would soon change.
