The New Jersey Meadowlands Commission will hold information sessions on 17 boat slip rentals at the NJMC’s new River Barge Park on Wednesday, March 14, at 6 p.m. and Saturday, March 17, at 9 a.m.
The March 14 meeting will be held at the Meadowlands Environment Center in DeKorte Park in Lyndhurst. The March 17 session will take place at River Barge Park, off Outwater Lane in Carlstadt. The seasonal rentals offer the first new slips in the Meadowlands District in a decade.
The maximum boat length for each slip is 28 feet. The marina includes a launch ramp, waste disposal system, a wash-out yard and a hose bib on the courtesy dock. Electrical service is not available on the docks.
River Barge Park is the NJMC’s latest urban environmental jewel. The 5.5-acre park includes a paddling ramp, riverfront promenade with seating, catch-and-release fishing, park trail, education pavilion, historical and interpretive signage, and native plants.
