8 MILES OF A MULTI-USE, LINEAR PARK RUNNING THROUGH NORTHEAST BERGEN COUNTY, NEW JERSEY

The Northern Valley Greenway…
Is a concept for an 8-mile-long, linear park running through six towns in Bergen County: Tenafly, Cresskill, Demarest, Closter, Norwood & Northvale.

Will be built on an existing unused section of CSX Transportation’s Northern Branch Corridor rail line north of Englewood.

Will have something for everyone – walk, stroll, run, bike, rollerblade, picnic, dogwalk, relax, exercise, sunbathe or nap.

Is a cooperative service project of the Rotary Clubs of Tenafly, Northern Valley & Cresskill/Demarest and an inter-local municipal initiative with official resolutions of support from the Mayor and Councils of the six boroughs along the line. The NJ Bike & Walk Coalition has an advisory role on the committee.

Has wide community, business, interest group, CSX and local, County & State governmental support.
