Description

The Greenbelt Nature Center is open from 11 am – 5 pm, Wednesday through Sunday, November through March. Located at the intersection of Brielle and Rockland avenues, the center, which is FREE and open to all, offers access to the hiking trail system, and a variety of programs and educational opportunities – including the state-of-the-art Richmond County Savings Foundation Exhibits. The center is closed on major holidays and on Easter. The opening of this long-awaited public facility, located on Rockland Avenue at the intersection of Brielle Avenue on Staten Island, fulfills a major part of the Greenbelt’s Masterplan. The Masterplan, published by the Greenbelt Conservancy in 1991, describes a park for the 21st century that embodies respect for the Greenbelt’s natural systems, sensitivity to its historic and cultural past, and a commitment to the needs of the community. The center is a hub for Greenbelt activities and programs. Visitors can obtain a trail map and access the Greenbelt’s trail system, sign up for programs and activities, speak with a Greenbelt representative, or just relax and enjoy the beautiful wooded grounds.The Greenbelt Nature Center is open from 11 am – 5 pm, Wednesday through Sunday, November through March.
