Freshkills Park’s North Park is Getting Closer to Construction

Exciting progress is being made on the first interior park project at Freshkills Park, known as North Park Phase 1. This landmark 20-acre project will connect visitors to views of the park’s hills and waterways.

Freshkills Park has been opening gradually since 2012.


Wetland Restoration Monitoring

Staff and interns collect data at the North Park Wetland Restoration site.

In mid-August, Freshkills Park staff and interns conducted the annual monitoring of the North Park Wetland Restoration. Each year we record how the native plants are doing, whether any invasive plant species are coming back in, and what kinds of wildlife are using the restored site.

This summer marks the one-year anniversary since the restoration of salt marsh wetlands along Main Creek in North Park. During the spring of 2013, a crew that specializes in ecological restoration completed construction in an area formerly dominated by Phragmites into a successional wetland.
