Discover Freshkills Park and experience the unique landscape and spectacular views the landfill-to-park project has to offer. This free event is a special opportunity to spend a summer afternoon exploring the future park while the site is closed to the public. Hundreds of acres and miles of trails will be open for tours, bicycling, and activities for all ages.

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 Fresh Kills Landfill, which was the largest landfill in the world before closing in 2001. Since then, 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.

Discovery Day will include the following activities:

  • Birdwatching tours with NYC Audubon
  • Free bicycle rentals
  • Kite-flying and other activities with NYC Parks
  • Music performances by Staten Island Philharmonic
  • Spoken word performance organized by the Staten Island Creative Community
  • Sunprint art with Alice Austen House
  • Wind chime-making with Skip LaPlante, with supplies from Materials for the Arts

During the event, free shuttles will provide transportation to and from the Staten Island Ferry Terminal in St. George. Parking will be available just outside Freshkills Park in lots near 350 Wild Avenue. From there, visitors can take a shuttle bus or walk or bike one mile to the main event area.
