At 2,200 acres, 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. Freshkills Park remains closed to the public during this exciting transformation. Join us on one of our scheduled activities to see it for yourself. Free tours offer insights into ongoing development and unmatched views, and recreational programs provide opportunities to experience the beautiful hills and waterways firsthand before the park officially opens.
