Natural Resources

The Greenbelt’s natural and “Forever Wild” areas support rare habitats such as wetlands, forests, woodlands, meadows, and native rare plant species.  They are accessible through our extensive trail system located in an urban setting. Read more about how this precious resource is managed and cared for.

 

Greenbelt Conservancy is a 501 (c) (3) tax-exempt organization. Become a member; support and donate. We thank you.

Our website is made possible, in part, by a generous grant from The Staten Island Foundation.

Willowbrook Park

Enter from Eton Place off Richmond Avenue or Victory Boulevard

Willowbrook Park’s central location makes it easily accessible, yet this popular park is sufficiently isolated from the hustle and bustle of the surrounding area.   Easy access to the Greenbelt’s White Trail and woodlands lie beyond Willowbrook park.  The park is also adjacent to the 240-acre College of Staten Island campus, a branch of the City University of New York.

Willowbrook’s 164-acres of parkland is one of the Greenbelt’s most-visited areas; it boasts baseball and archery fields, tennis courts, a shaded picnic grove, lake, playground, the Carousel for All Children and hiking trails.  Click here or call (718) 667-3545 for information on permits for using the picnic grove and ball fields.  Click here for Carousel information.

The Carousel for All Children, which is open May through October, is located at the Eton Place entrance to the park.  It is a magnet for families and a place where great memories are made.   The Carousel is available for private rental and school trips.

Willowbrook Lake, one of the park’s loveliest features, is a perfect spot to cast a line for catch-and-release fishing.   The walkway and trails around the lake are suitable for a quiet stroll or invigorating jog.  Willowbrook Lake was constructed in 1932 and is the first human-made pond on Staten Island.  Click here to read more about Willowbrook Park history.

Several special events, including the annual Carousel opening celebration on the first Saturday in May, the Borough President’s annual summer concert for children, and Fall Flat 5-K Run in November take place in Willowbrook Park.
