For over 50 years, the City of New York sent most of its garbage to a single landfill in Staten Island...so much garbage in fact, that it became the world's largest landfill and was on track to become the highest point on the East Coast. Today, that former landfill will achieve a much more celebrated global accolade — as the largest landfill-to-park in the world, and NYC's second largest park when complete. Join New York Adventure Club ( http://www.nyadventureclub.com/ ) for a private exploration of Freshkills Park ( https://www.nycgovparks.org/park-features/freshkills-park ) — originally a 2,200-acre landfill, Freshkills Park will be almost three times the size of Central Park, and the largest park developed in New York City in over 100 years once fully complete in 2036. Led by a NYC Parks staff member, our exploration of this massive landscape will include: • An overview of Freshkills, from its days as the world's largest landfill to the planned three-phase transformation into a public park
• A behind-the-scenes visit to inaccessible areas of FreshKills Park to see the different planned stages of park development
• A closer look at the park's plant and animal ecology that sustains on the grounds
• Sweeping views of the NYC skyline from the 'hilltops" that were once garbage mounds Vehicular transportation will be provided to/from meeting location (30-minute drive from St. George Ferry Terminal) and within the park. Click here to watch a short video about Freshkills Park!
