This free event is a chance to explore normally closed areas of Freshkills Park and enjoy the unique landscape and spectacular views the landfill-to-park project has to offer! Over 700 acres and eight miles of trails will be open for a day of photography, bicycling, activities, and tours.

The event will include:

  • Guided tours.
  • Bicycling on five miles of paved paths. Bring your own bike or rent one for free at the park!
  • Self-guided hiking and photography across eight miles of trails.
  • Kite-flying and other family-friendly activities led by NYC Parks.
  • Shuttles to and from the event area: one at the Staten Island Ferry Terminal, one at parking lots near 350 Wild Avenue, and another at one of the park’s scenic hills.
