Joseph G. Minish Passaic River Waterfront Park and Historic Area

The waterfront along the Central Business District in Newark, New Jersey is in a degraded state and the riverbank is seriously eroded due to historical industrial use and neglect. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New York District, is partnered with the State of New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection and City of Newark to construct the Minish Park Project which will reduce riverbank erosion and lay the foundation for waterfront park development and return of public access to the Passaic River in Newark, NJ. Phase I of the project includes 6,000 linear feet of bulkhead construction and 3,200 linear feet of riverbank grading and native plantings. Two bulkhead construction reaches have been completed north of Penn Station and construction is ongoing new to Jackson Street Bridge. Partners are working towards a project agreement for Phase II/III design and construction of a waterfront walkway and park.
