Come to Freshkills Park for an opportunity to discover the trails and hills of the landfill-to-park project!

We’re opening up the future North Park and miles of additional interior trails for walking, bicycling, jogging and exploring on two Sundays this summer, on June 7 and August 2.

At each event, Kayak Staten Island will lead a free kayaking program from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Fresh Kill and Main Creek waterways. Bicycles will be available for riding around the trails, and NYC Audubon will lead a nature hike near the creek. Visitors are also encouraged to bring their own cameras to photograph the park in progress. Pack a picnic or purchase food and non-alcoholic beverages from event food trucks.

A bus to the scenic overlook will run throughout the day. Shuttles into the site will run continuously from parking at Wild Avenue to the creek of North Park, and on a scheduled basis from St. George Ferry Terminal. Visitors, including bicycle riders and dog owners, can enter the site directly at 350 Wild Avenue and do not need to take a shuttle.

The site will be open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. with the last entrance at 3:30 p.m. Visit Freshkill's Discovery Day for more information.

Start time: 11:00 am

End time: 4:00 pm

Spectacular landscapes and panoramic views await you.

Come to Freshkills Park for an opportunity to discover the trails and hills of the landfill-to-park project! We’re opening up the future North Park and miles of additional interior trails for walking, bicycling, jogging, and exploring this summer.

Kayak Staten Island will lead a free kayaking program from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. in the Fresh Kill and Main Creek waterways, bicycles will be available for riding around the trails, and NYC Audubon will lead a nature hike near the creek. A bus to the scenic overlook will run throughout the day. Visitors are also encouraged to bring their own cameras to photograph the park in progress, pack a picnic, or purchase food and non-alcoholic beverages from event food trucks.

Shuttles into the site will run continuously from the parking area at Wild Avenue to the creek of North Park, and on a scheduled basis from St. George Ferry Terminal. Visitors, including bicycle riders and dog owners, can enter the site directly at 350 Wild Avenue and do not need to take a shuttle.

All ages. Free. The site will be open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. with the last entrance at 3:30 p.m. Visit freshkillspark.org/event/discovery-day to find out more.

Start time: 11:00 am
