Photograph Freshkills 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 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 minimum 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.
Your ticket admits 1 car andall 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. Each ticket holder may bring up to 4 additional guests in their car. Due to limited reservations, carpooling with friends and family is encouraged.
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 wear long pants, close-toed shoes, and insect repellant. Also wear a hat and bring water and a snack. You will be asked to sign an activity waiver before participating in the program. Do not attend if you are sick or have been exposed to COVID-19.
