On May 3, 2019, Governor Phil Murphy signed the legislation that codifies the Public Trust Doctrine into New Jersey Law. For years, the NJDEP, that enforces public access to river fronts and beaches, has been operating without legislation that gives them strong enforcement powers.

This new legislation will allow the NJDEP and the Hudson Rive Waterfront Conservancy to enforce what has always been the right of the public to freely access the Hudosn River waterfront and the states beaches.

While most of the Walkway from Bayonne to Fort Lee is completed and freely accessible to the public 24/7, a few properties still illegally prevent public access.  The Conservancy will continue to work with the NJDEP to open these few properties to the public and complete the 18.6 mile Waterfront Walkway along the Hudson River.

We thank you for your support as the Walkway becomes an even larger component of the public transportation and recreational systems along the Hudson.
