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.
The park is lined by old ballasts, channel markers and other nautical artifacts salvaged from the Barge Club, an iconic Meadowlands restaurant during the 1970s and 1980s that previously occupied the site. The property’s rich history extends back to the 1940s, when it was part of Sky Harbor, a seaplane base that trained hundreds of aviators, including U.S. and Canadian fliers during World War II.
For those who cannot attend the information sessions, an overview and frequently asked questions sheet will be available beginning on March 14 at
