Interactive Site Map Provides Snapshot of Freshkills Park
As Freshkills Park undergoes its long transformation from landfill to public greenspace, access remains limited and it can be challenging to convey to the public all of the things going on inside the park’s boundaries. The Freshkills Park Development team has created an interactive map to serve as a virtual tour of the park project. The map includes information, photos, and video related to the history of the site, its landfill-to-park transformation, park design, recreation opportunities, scientific research, artistic projects, and the site’s ecology. We hope this new tool will allow the public to explore some of the historic and ongoing projects at Freshkills Park. For opportunities to visit during this transformation and see some of these projects in person, check out our calendar at https://freshkillspark.org/calendar.
