The Battery Conservancy will celebrate the grand opening of The Battery Oval with a weekend fair to engage the public in our region’s biodiversity and its emerging food and plant producers, illustrating The Battery’s core values.

Over the past two decades, The Battery has transformed New York’s birthplace park into an oasis of vast perennial gardens, educational farm plots, toxin-free lawns, and sinuous bicycle paths. The Battery Fair reinstates one of the oldest uses of civic space, the public market, at one of New York’s most prominent public parks. Since antiquity, public markets have protected and promoted fresh food, regional economies, and vibrant civic spaces. The Battery Fair creates a new public stage for local food and plant purveyors inspired by this history and dedicated to the ongoing revitalization of Lower Manhattan.

The fair will showcase innovations in agriculture, horticulture, food, and craft, emphasize the connections between food production and plant production, and support and connect local small batch entrepreneurs who are defining alternative, sustainable systems of natural production without compromising taste and beauty.

Explore 700 acres of the normally closed landfill-to-park project with bicycling, guided tours, artist-led activities, kayaking, and a photography competition. This is a one-day opportunity to discover the unique experience and views the park has to offer.

Visitors of all ages can bring their own bicycle or rent one for free to bike across five miles of paved roadway, including a three-mile loop along meadows and wetland ponds. NYC Audubon and other groups will offer free guided walks. Food trucks will also be at the park during the event.

Kayaking Tours
Kayak Staten Island will lead two tours along the creeks at Freshkills Park. Pre-registration is required for kayak tours. Participants must be at least 16 years old. Kayaks, life vests, and brief safety training will be provided. Registration opens Sunday, June 12 at 9:00 a.m.

Photo Contest
Photographers are invited to take photos at the event and submit them to “A Fresh Look: Freshkills Park Photo Contest.” Winning portraits of Freshkills Park will be published in the Staten Island Advance and displayed at the Staten Island Arts Culture Lounge. Register here for the photo contest.

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, science, education, and art. As the park is built in phases, free tours and events provide early access for learning and recreation opportunities.
