The Marshlands include over 3000 acres of open space in central New Jersey adjacent to the Delaware River between Trenton and Bordentown. Their diverse habitats – freshwater tidal and non-tidal marshes and swamps, ponds, and woodlands – are home to many kinds of plants and animals.
The Abbott Marshlands provide many opportunities for nature study, recreation, and quiet reflection. There are trails for hiking, some for biking, and there are picnic tables in several locations.
