Mill Creek Marsh

Mill Creek Marsh

A former wasteland between Bob’s Furniture Outlet and Interstate 95, this meandering little eden is a beacon of green in the Meadowlands. Narrow pathways snake and intersect across the grassy marsh that is home to over 260 species of birds – all with Manhattan’s skyline as its backdrop. Flushed by the Atlantic’s tides, the scenery changes throughout the day. Bring binoculars to get a better look at the vibrant life that’s gliding across the water and fluttering alongside you.

BOOK PAIRING:

Mill Creek Marsh brings to life the happy ending of Peter Brown’s wonderful picture book, The Curious Garden. Inspired by Manhattan’s Highline Park, the story follows a boy and a tiny patch of plant life. Together, they turn a grey and dismal city into a flourishing gardenscape. And as you read, you can glance over at the city that inspired it.
