Jamaica Bay-Rockaway Parks are comprised of 10,000 acres of parkland, including beaches, meadows and islands, and Jamaica Bay, an 18,000-acre wetland estuary. Serving as a wildlife sanctuary for over 300 species of birds, a destination for outdoor enthusiasts with over 20 miles of greenway and trails, an historic landmark in aviation at Floyd Bennett Field, and a buffer area to protect coastal communities from future storms, Jamaica Bay-Rockaway Parks play an important role in the natural and built environment.
