Greenway Concept Plan

Making the Rahway River Greenway Concept Plan a Reality

In partnership with the City of Rahway, the RRA hired the RBA Group to develop the Rahway River Greenway Concept Plan.  Made part of the City of Rahway Master Plan in 2006, the 2 mile greenway envisions a bucolic riverfront trail for nature observation, fishing and as an alternative mode of travel and pedestrian traffic.
RRA obtained a Green Acres grant for the City of Rahway of $80,000.00 to buy a 4 acre parcel in 2006.
