Newark's Riverfront Park, a three-acre recreation area along the Passaic, officially opened today, the latest step in a decades-long crusade to reclaim a city waterfront long marred by pollution.

Great for newark! I plan on purchasing a small motorboat and using the new marina too. Now that the passaic river in newark is much cleaner now i hear the fishing is pretty good. I heard reports of people catching striped bass, river trout, northern pike, channel catfish,perch, shad and even freshwater salmon. I saw a few snapping turtles too. Newark is becoming a great place to live work and play yet again. Cheers for the new newark!!!

I tell you newark is on the rise, it is good to see all the new development all over town. I saw some mallard ducks on the river in newark and many snapper turtles too. That means the river is a lot cleaner than it used to be. Im going to do some fishing too.
