Great Kills Park
The Great Kills beaches along Staten Island's east coast are perfect for summer recreation or watching wildlife. The city park portion is near Oakwood and New Dorp Beach, whereas the national park, also named Great Kills, is to the south at Bay Terrace. Watch your step in the national park portion, because nearly half of the park land is closed and being tested for radioactivity! ☢️
