Bring a bike and a helmet for this free, fun event for children ages five or older! Show your kids how to ride a two-wheeler.
First session 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
Second session 12:45 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.
*Parents must ensure that the bicycle fits their child and is in good working order (i.e., wheels spin freely, brakes function). The child must be able to rest his or her feet flat on the ground while sitting on the bicycle seat. Training wheels should be removed in advance and tires should be inflated until they are hard.
Bike, run, walk, or birdwatch in normally closed areas of Freshkills Park! Six miles of roads will be accessible for this event. Visitors can bring their own bikes or rent one for free. Staff and volunteers will be there to answer questions about the landfill-to-park project.
For those who have attended Discovery Day in the past, Open Hours is something new. Access will be limited to the asphalt roadways around the mounds. Visitors must provide their own transportation or travel by public transit.
