|Park Description:|| |
The Staten Island Greenbelt is preserved open space in central Staten Island -- three times the size of Central Park in Manhattan. It includes Willowbrook Park, La Tourette Park, High Rock Park, and Clove Lakes Park. These parks maintain a huge variety of recreational, educational, and natural programs and facilities. There are long range plans underway to incorporate the Fresh Kills landfill site into the Greenbelt, almost doubling its size, and creating one of the world's largest urban parks.
|Trails Overview:|| |
4 major marked trails wind though the Greenbelt, often following corridors reserved for parkway construction that was successfully blocked by community and conservation groups in the early 1980s. There are additional small connectors and loops.
Trail maps are available at the Greenbelt Conservancy website and from the link near the top of this page.
Staten Island is accessed by ferry from Battery Park in Manhattan, the Verazzano Bridge from Brooklyn, and the Goethals Bridge from New Jersey. From the Ferry Terminal on Staten Island, several buses service locations in the Greenbelt.
