Alley Pond Park and Fort Totten Park
Queens County is home to this Stewardship Area which includes Alley Pond Park and Fort Totten Park.
Alley Pond Park sits at the southern end of Little Neck Bay, offering a unique opportunity to experience a natural environment in the midst of urbanized Queens. The park exhibits a variety of habitats, including tidal wetland, coastal grassland, and shrubland habitats, on over 657 acres of protected area. Also within the park is Alley Pond Environmental Center which offers a series of educational programs throughout the year.
Further north in this Stewardship Area is Fort Totten Park, which sits on 60 acres of land that juts into Little Neck Bay. Fort Totten Park is home to an old Civil War fortress and provides habitat for winter waterfowl to stop for a rest during their long trek south.
