Long Pond Park

Long Pond Park is a park preserve on the South Shore of Staten Island. It is approximately 115 acres (0.47 km2) in size and consists mainly of woodlands and wetlands that surround Long Pond, for which the park is named. Long Pond Park is roughly bounded by Hylan Boulevard on the south, Page Avenue on the west, Amboy Road on the north, and Richard Avenue on the east. It is an important stopping point for migrating birds in the Atlantic Flyway.

The majority of parkland was created in 1997 when the Parks Department acquired 90 acres (360,000 m2) of land surrounding Long Pond. Sixteen acres were added in 2001 and 1.6 acres (6,500 m2) were added in 2006. In addition to serving as a nature preserve, Long Pond Park also forms part of the Staten Island Bluebelt, a stormwater drainage system.[1]
