Fort Wadsworth, Great Kills Park and Miller Field make up Gateway National Recreation Area’s Staten Island Unit. Along with Gateway NRA’s other units: Sandy Hook and Jamaica Bay, this National Recreation Area provides abundant recreational and learning opportunities, from swimming, boating and fishing to team sports, bicycling and nature study. The nation’s oldest operating lighthouse, forts that defended America, and sites that trace aviation’s early days tell significant stories. Fort Wadsworth is one of the oldest military installations in the nation. The site occupies 226 acres on the northeastern shore of Staten Island, on the Narrows of New York Harbor. Rich in history and natural beauty, Fort Wadsworth affords you the opportunity to observe an important part of our nation’s history, while offering magnificant views of New York Harbor.
