Freshkills Sunset Photography Tour
Join a small group of photographers and document Freshkills Park’s transformation from landfill to 2,200-acre park. This guided tour is an opportunity to see and photograph the unique engineered landscape while the site is closed to the public. We welcome photographers of all skill levels, but you must bring your own equipment, whether a digital camera, film camera, or your phone!
This tour is donation-based and we suggest a $10 donation per participant, but we understand everyone is in a different position to give and thank you for whatever you can. Your donation supports the education, programming, and research at the Freshkills Park Alliance and makes programs like this possible.
You will be asked to sign an activity waiver before participating in the program.
Your ticket admits 1 car. All participants must provide their own car that will stay on-site the whole time. Participants may not use a bicycle, taxi or ride-share service due to ongoing construction. During registration you will be asked about additional participants in your car. Due to limited reservations, carpooling with friends and family is encouraged. All participants under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
Meeting location to be provided upon confirmation: We will caravan into the Park together from the meeting location.
Accessibility: This tour will drive and stop at several spots in the park with minimal walking. The roads themselves can be uneven at times.
Plan Ahead: Be “tick aware” and “heat aware. Bring water and a snack.
