The Confluence
The Confluence is located in the heart of Fresh Kills. On the north side of Fresh Kills Creek is Creek Landing, on the south side is The Point.

Creek Landing
The Creek Landing is located where Richmond Creek and Main Creek join the central Fresh Kills Creek. The vision for Creek Landing is for waterfront activities, including an esplanade, canoe and boat launch, special restaurants, a visitor center, and a huge event lawn for gatherings, picnics and sunbathing. The area would also allow for car parking and could be a central point of arrival and departure for park users.

The Point
The Point is a large, level area on the south side of Fresh Kills Creek which can provide event areas, sports fields, lawns and art-works. A long promenade along the water’s edge could support restaurants with outdoor dining, a banquet facility and an open-air market roof. Old machinery and artifacts from Fresh Kills, such as old barges re-made as floating planted gardens, may form a unique feature here. The promenade would be a vibrant social space, with seating, fishing piers, and great views across the water of the Isle of Meadows nature preserve. The Point may also support a ferry service to and from Manhattan, as well as a number of specially designed, unique waterfront restaurants and cafes.
