Originally created as Staten Island’s response to Manhattan’s Central Park and Brooklyn’s Prospect Park, Silver Lake Park provides abundant recreational activities amidst plenty of trails and open space to wander. A loop around the lake is 2 miles. To reach the park via public transit, take the Staten Island ferry, then hop on the S62 bus to Park entrance at intersection of Victory Boulevard and Clove Road.
Longer Run Option: Combine this loop with the Cloves Park, about 3.5 mile add-on, starting from same place. Can also be combined with Staten Island Greenbelt trail.
