The planning team has developed a detailed vision for transformation of the 2200-acre Fresh Kills site into the City's second largest park (Pelham Bay in the Bronx is the largest at 2,765 acres). The innovative plan proposes a wide diversity of activities and visitor experiences such as field sports and cultural events; kayaking, hiking, bird-watching and bicycling; waterfront dining and picnicking; ecology education, wind and solar energy production, public art and a proposed earthwork monument to the World Trade Center Recovery Effort.

Fresh Kills Park will have five main areas: the Confluence, North Park, South Park, East Park and West Park. Each area will have a distinct character and programming approach.
