River Barge Park and Marina, 260 Outwater Lane, Carlstadt, NJ

River Barge Park and Marina is a 5.5-acre, handicapped-accessible urban jewel located on the Hackensack River in Carlstadt and provides a much-needed public access to the river in southern Bergen County.

River Barge Park offers a variety of boating activities, splendid riverfront views and a tranquil setting for relaxation, bird watching and environmental education. The park includes a boat ramp, docks, paddling and rowing launch points, a 17-slip marina, a scenic promenade with picnic tables, and paths lined by native plants.

The docks serve as the launch point for the NJMC’s highly popular pontoon boat cruises. The two-hour cruises run from late May through September and are led by experienced NJMC guides who explain the region’s history and point out the area’s flora and fauna. The Commission also offers guided canoe tours throughout the Meadowlands. Click here for more on boat tours.

The new park has a rich history. In the 1940s, the site was part of Sky Harbor, a seaplane base that trained hundreds of aviators during World War II. The property later became the home of the Barge Club, an iconic area restaurant named for two covered wooden barges that made up the core of the facility. The restaurant owner’s collection of nautical and regional artifacts, including ballasts and channel markers, are displayed throughout the property. The park’s beautifully illustrated interpretive signs further evoke a sense of place and identity.

River Barge Park advances the NJMC’s commitment to sustainability and green building through its incorporation of energy-efficient LED railing lights, solar and LED marina lights, and environmentally friendly stormwater management, collection, and filtering systems.
