The New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority is pleased to announce the reopening of the Marsh Discovery Trail as a full boardwalk loop, starting Saturday, April 15. We are thrilled and dedicated to providing our valuable park visitors with a great experience. The announcement comes at a perfect time as the weather becomes warmer and the days get longer.
The Marsh Discovery Trail provides an up-close vantage point for visitors to observe and photograph the Meadowlands abundant wildlife and stunning natural beauty, and to gain valuable and inspiring first-hand knowledge about the region’s unique urban eco-system.
The walkway is an especially great spot for bird watching given its habitat for breathtaking nesting and migratory birds. The amazing wildlife and landscape photographs so gracefully captured by Trail users constantly amaze us. The Marsh Discovery Trail also provides visitors and families an educational benefit and rejuvenating sense of peace and tranquility.
The half-mile Trail opened in 1991 and has long been DeKorte Park’s most popular walkway. Framed by the New York City skyline, the Marsh Discovery Trail extends over the park’s tidal impoundment, known as the Shorebird Pool, and includes study docks, shaded and open classrooms, and seating areas.
Please note that the Trail will be closed on certain, upcoming days as staff put the finishing touches on improvements. We will provide updates on meadowblog.net and njsea.com in advance.
The Marsh Discovery Trail is located in DeKorte Park, 2 DeKorte Park Plaza, Lyndhurst.
See you on the Trail!
