Building of the Day: Freshkills Park

Venue: Freshkills Park

North Park will be a 21-acre swath of land connecting visitors to spectacular views of Main Creek and the adjacent William T. Davis Wildlife Refuge via divided walking and high speed paths. Park visitors will stroll along seven acres of native seed plots operated by the Department of Parks & Recreation’s Greenbelt Native Plant Center. Construction is underway, and the project will open to the public in 2020.
