Ocean Breeze is a 110 acre park that was once part of the Staten Island University Hospital campus. This project will add 18.5 acres of parkland by combining a 12.5 acre portion of South Beach State Park and a 6 acre portion of Midland Beach Park. Much of the park consists of sand dunes, wetlands, grasslands and shrub forest, and will remain in its natural state. A large parcel of approximately 10 acres will be the site of the new indoor track and field facility that will accommodate 2,500 seats. Enhancements to the scenic landscape and habitat are planned to restore the integrity of the park’s ecology. Formalized nature trails will be built throughout the ecological areas of the park, and ecological restorations will remove other informal trails in sensitive areas, returning those areas to bird and small mammal shelter.
