Greenbelt Nature Center

700 Rockland Ave Staten Island


The centrally-located Greenbelt Nature Center – 700 Rockland Avenue near Brielle Avenue – is a hub for a wide range of Greenbelt activities and programs. Here you may view the Richmond County Savings Foundation exhibits to learn about Greenbelt history, geography, flora and fauna, and current happenings.  Please enjoy our newly installed “Flexi-pave” walkways made from recycled materials, and also made possible with funding from the Richmond County Savings Foundation.

“Into the Outdoors” public programs includes a range of programs including art workshops, author lectures, performances, and hikes throughout the year. Mini Camp, Peepers, and Tree Tots are programs for our youngest naturalists; “Nature of Art” workshops are offered for teens, adults, and seniors. Environmental education classes take place at the Nature Center as well. The Center is ADA compliant and presents many accessible programs.
