The Essex-Hudson Greenway
The proposed Essex-Hudson Greenway Project would offer a nearly nine-mile long, multi-use trail corridor following a converted rail line, creating more than 135acres of new green space when completed. TheGreenway sets the stage for the creation of a nearly nine-mile transformational linear park that will provide new recreation opportunities for walkers, bikers, birders, and other nature lovers while improving transportation options for area residents. The long-held vision of all the communities along the route, there are many groups and individuals who have previously advocated and continue to advocate for this project. Multi-use trails, such as this proposed project, are an integral part of local transportation systems. They provide free recreational opportunities for all ages, encourage healthier lifestyles, bolster local economic development, reduce car trips and carbon footprints, provide additional transportation options, and encourage better environmental stewardship. When completed, the Essex-Hudson Greenway will pass through eight municipalities in Essex and Hudson Counties, including Montclair, Glen Ridge, Bloomfield, Belleville, Newark, Kearny, Secaucus, and Jersey City.
