Tottenville and the Conference House Park - Part 2

Conference HouseThere is a lot to see in addition to the Conference House, mentioned in the Part 1, as the park is actually pretty big.

There are several roads going through the park. Some of them are covered with asphalt, while others are more suited for the running exercises, enforced by wood.

The road goes around the woodlands, but sometimes gets closer to the shore and you can see people riding the horses along it.

But eventually, even if you don't turn to the beach before, the road will get you right to the ocean. This is the most southern part of New York.

It might seem that the road ends here, right on the beach, but it actually continues, running north and this is where a bird observation deck is situated, right by a small lake next to the beach. The wooden structure shields the visitors from the nature, allowing them to take nice photos and observe the wildlife not being spotted.

There are other ways to get to the observation deck. Following one of the main park roads, Billop avenue, named after the first settler, you can get to the same lake, crossed by a stone bridge.

You can walk a little bit by the side of the lake to get on a strange surfaced road, going back to the Billop avenue.

And on the other side of the Billop ave a short trail starts taking the visitors right to the beach and the observation deck.

There are also remains of Lenape (native american tribe that lived on the Staten Island) Burial Ridge, but it is not that easy to locate the spot.  Heading back to the train station, it might make sense to go through the city as Staten Island is the most green and beautiful part of New York and walking there is very close to walking in the park.
