Staten Island Parks Professional Review and Guide
"This ride takes you to three very distinct Staten Island parks. The first, Snug Harbor, is a cultural center and botanical garden that started off as a hospital for aging seamen.
The second, Clove Lakes Park, is a “forever wild” site, a designation the city’s parks department bestows to preserve natural spots that are of unique ecological value. The third, Silver Lake Park, is Staten Island’s Central Park, with a serene lake at its heart. Spring bloom and fall foliage make this ride particularly enjoyable, so try to go in spring or fall."
