Gateway National Recreation Area: Many Places, One Park
We are not just Sandy Hook. We are not just the Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge or Jacob Riis Park. We are not just Fort Tilden. We are not just Frank Charles Park or Hamilton Beach. We are not just Floyd Bennett Field or Canarsie Pier. We are not just Great Kills Park, or Fort Wadsworth, or Miller Field. We are one national park, we are Gateway.
