Mill Creek Point Park (Secaucus)
At the confluence of the Hackensack River and Mill Creek, this riverfront promenade is surrounded by hundreds of acres of restored wetlands. It is adjacent to Secaucus’ newly renovated ball field complex.
Designed and constructed by NJMC, owned and operated by the Town of Secaucus, the new public park features a launch for canoes and kayaks,a wildlife viewing area, and an area for catch-and-release fishing. Design details include images of the most abundant fish in the Hackensack sandblasted into bluestone pavers. A railing featuring silhouettes of local birds edges the promenade. Interpretive signs describe wildlife and help guide visitors to canoe trails.
For the previous fifty years, the property housed a marina and boat launch as well as Tony’s Old Mill Inn, a popular restaurant and pub. Tony’s Old Mill was allegedly built on the remains of a gristmill built around 1840 on the left bank of Mill Creek. As early as the 1760’s, numerous sawmills and gristmills operated along the tributaries of the Hackensack River.
