Blue Heron Park Preserve

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Blue Heron Park Preserve is a nature refuge on Staten Island, New York which has various natural areas including meadows, kettle ponds, freshwater streams and marshes, and woodlands. The park, maintained by the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation, was acquired by the city in several parcels between 1974 and 2001, with the official dedication taking place on October 22, 1996.

The extensive wetlands in the park are part of the "Blue Belt" an area of Staten Island which utilizes existing and improved undeveloped areas for storm water drainage. There are six ponds located within the park including the 1.75-acre (7,100 m2) Spring Pond and the 1.4-acre (5,700 m2) Blue Heron Pond

The park provides habitat to various species of birds including the Blue heron (Ardea herodias) for which it was named as well as various species of mammals such as bats, raccoons, grey squirrels and chipmunks.

The visitors center for the park located off Poillon Ave, is the starting point for three trails which traverse different areas of the park.
