What's the weather? At Gateway, it's complicated.

Gateway National Recreation Area includes several separate land areas spread throughout the New York metropolitan area. The New York area experiences four distinct seasons. Temperatures are moderate in the spring and fall, but range from the high 90's during the summer to snow and sleet in winter.

Please use caution whenever visiting the park. Following us on Twitter is one good way to learn about park closures due to adverse weather.
