Virtual Tour: Explore Freshkills Park

Janes Walk

Led By Rachel Aronson, Education Programming Coordinator, Freshkills Park

Freshkills Park, New York City’s largest new park in over a century, is a fascinating look into trash and transformation in New York City. This self-guided virtual tour will bring Jane’s Walk participants behind the scenes of the world’s largest landfill-to-park transformation. Visitors will interact with videos, maps, and more as they navigate through a virtual tour of park history, engineering, and environmental transformation.


This tour is virtual and self-guided, on your own time. The tour includes videos with closed captioning and pictures with alternate text. The tour also includes a component designed on ArcGIS StoryMaps, which involves scrolling through text, pictures, and video.
