Current projects along the Greenway are the completion of native species planting at the new Mary S. Topolsky Garden and Trail and the reopening of the trail at Riverside Drive from Pomander Walk to Cedar Lane.
With the help of Master Gardeners, a resident from 5 Star Residence of Teaneck, and Scenery Nature Landscaping, many varieties of native plants were planted throughout the garden and trail.
A 3D map of the Hackensack River and the Greenway in Teaneck is being developed especially for visitors who are blind or visually impaired to gain a sense of the flow of the river and its shoreline. Continue to check this site for a spring event once the garden is in bloom.
Riverside Drive offers a wonderful stretch of trail that envelops you into the natural setting of our Greenway. It is a more roughed trail with some inclines, but we are working to improve the trail and open up beautiful vistas of the river. Our first step has been to clear the trail of fallen trees and debris. We will be working with NY/NJ Trails Conference for the best way to enhance visitor’s experiences along the Riverside Trail.
Come visit the trail and see the potential it offers visitors to the Greenway.
