Mill Creek Marsh Park in Secaucus has reopened. The 209-acre park had been closed since mid-March because of extensive storm damage.
The park was once a phragmites marsh slated to become a development of 2,750 townhomes.
In 1998, NJMC began wetlands enhancement activities at the site, including the re-establishment of tidal flows, creation of open water impoundments, grading to create low, high and upland marsh areas, and native replantings to attract a diversity of aquatic life and birds.
It was the first wetlands enhancement project NJMC managed. This area is important for breeding and migratory waterfowl and shorebirds.
