RSVP Today for June 22 Ironbound Riverfront Walk

On Saturday, June 22, come explore the changing Ironbound Riverfront!

This walk will cover 2 miles of the Ironbound riverfront between Penn Station and Chapel Street. Come see for yourself the environmental clean-up of the old city gasworks, the just-opened Essex County Riverfront Park, and the nearly completed Newark Riverfront Park featuring a bright orange boardwalk. Also hear the stories and meet some of the Newarkers who have organized their neighbors to shape our community. Join the movement to reconnect the soul of Newark to its river.

Please wear comfortable clothes and sturdy closed-toe shoes. You are encouraged to bring a bottle of water. Hard hats are optional. ; )
