Goethals Field

trees at Goethal's Field

To help reclaim and beautify the landscape, Goethals Field was planted with many fast growing poplar trees, growing large and straight, and lending to the area's characteristically cultivated feel.

The replanting efforts undertaken here have not only increased the available habitat for local wildlife, but they have also helped turn what was once merely a neglected and vacant plot of land into a veritable treasure for the neighboring community.

In addition to the lovely scenery, the Conservation Department has begun to develop a winding trail making its way through the thriving vegetation and lush trees, bringing explorers on a pleasant journey across the land, down to the pond, and connecting back to the Goethals Pond viewing site.

As visitors make their way across the upland field, their gazes will become transfixed below them on the resplendent red maple swamp filled with fragrant viburnums and luscious ferns.


Goethals Field is located off of Morrow Street between Forest Ave and Goethals Rd North.

*Parking is available from the shoulder of the roads.
