Freshkills Park Open Hours
Bike, run, walk, or birdwatch in normally closed areas of Freshkills Park! Six miles of roads will be accessible for the event. Visitors can bring their own bikes or rent one for free. Staff and volunteers will be there to answer questions about the landfill-to-park project.
After serving as a landfill for over fifty years, the Freshkills Park site is now one of the most important environmental habitats in the city. With capping and protective systems, the closed landfill has become a new engineered landscape. Wildlife are already responding to the environmental changes. Birds, fish and mammals are thriving in the creeks and grasslands. As the park is built in phases, free tours and events provide early access.
The event entrance is at 350 Wild Avenue. Parking will be available in surrounding lots, and local and express bus transportation stops nearby. Bicycle rentals will be at the event entrance. From there, visitors can walk or bike into the park.
Venue: Freshkills Park
