Nature Walk at Freshkills Park
Lace up your shoes for a nature walk at Freshkills Park! Freshkills Park staff will take you behind the scenes to visit areas that are currently closed to the public. On this one-mile walk, you’ll learn about the different plants and animals found in the woods, wetlands, and grasslands at Freshkills Park.
There is a $10 suggested donation per participant. Your donation supports the education, programming, and research at the Freshkills Park Alliance and makes programs like this possible.
Your ticket admits 1 car. Due to on-going construction at the Freshkills site, 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. During registration you will be asked about additional participants in your car. Due to limited reservations, carpooling with friends and family is encouraged.
Location provided with confirmation email: We will meet and caravan onto the Freshkills Park site together.
Accessibility: We will be walking approximately 1-mile on a gravel trail, which includes elevation and can be uneven at times. If you have any accessibility needs, please let us know in advance so we can best accommodate you.
Plan Ahead: Be “tick aware” and “heat aware.” Wear appropriate clothing including close-toed shoes. Stay hydrated and make sure to bring water with you. All participants will be asked to sign an activity waiver before entering the park. Those under 18 need to have the waiver signed by a parent or guardian.
