The Hudson River Waterrfront Walkway at Port Liberte will be officially reopened to the public at a ribbon cutting 3:30 p.m.,  Wednesday, November 12, 2014!

Approximately $5.3 million have been expended to rebuild the bulkhead retaining wall to a height of 40 feet, backyards repaired and Walkway paved.  It has taken 13 months of work to complete the work.  Congratulations to the residents of Port Liberte for this accomplishment!

The Hudson River Waterfront Conservancy also sends its gratitude to Port Liberte Association for so successfully fulfilling the obligation to maintain and preserve the Walkway.

Conference Held - Report Ready

Walk the Walkway - 2014

The 2014 program of Walk the Walkway guided walks has been completed. Over 100 walkers joined the Board of the Conservancy on 7 Sunday walks in Downtown Jersey City, Hoboken, Weehawken, Jersey City Morris Canal, Bayonne Golf Course, Edgewater North and Edgewater South.

In addition to good exercise, spectacular vistas and good friendship, these walks provide a vehicle for the Conservancy to observe the development and maintenance of the Walkway.  This information is used in our efforts to work with the NJ DEP to oversee and ensure access to this wonderful facility that is open to the public.

Special thanks to Dan Chall for being our unofficial photographer.  You can see his work on our website under Galleries. I also want to thank all the walkers, especially those who join us most every walk and who have become good friends that we worry about when we don’t see them.

This year walkers came from as far away as Trenton, Morris County, Englewood and the Bronx to walk with us and learn about the waterfront.  We hope to see all of them next year.

The 2015 program of Walk the Walkway walks will be announced in March so look for our announcement in your e-mail.  If you are not on our e-mail list, just send a request to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it and we will add your name.

We thank all for making the Walkway complete and for fulfilling the guiding principle of getting the general public to their riverfront.

Well done!

The walkway between Sinatra Park and Castle Point Park includes a section completed by the Stevens Institute of Technology and a rebuilt section of walkway around Sinatra Field. Hoboken now has a continuous waterfront multiuse path from the Jersey City border to the skate park at Castle Point.
