2023-Merit-Bayfront Parks Master Plan

About the Project:

Occupying a 100-acre brownfield site, the Bayfront Parks Master Plan is a new archetype for resilient and equitable development along the Hackensack River. The centerpiece of Bayfront’s public realm is a half-mile waterfront park featuring civic spaces and newly established marshlands that will absorb rising tides, improve water quality, and provide riparian habitat. Two linear parks, situated atop engineered caps that isolate contaminated soil below, provide green connections between underserved upland neighborhoods and a newly accessible, public waterfront.
