The existing paved sidewalk begins on Cliff Road at Captain Carlson Park/the boat launch (at the end of Ferry Street) and ends about a half mile before the former Captain Hook’s Marina, which Woodbridge Township purchased a few years ago.

The 1.5 mile Woodbridge/Sewaren Waterfront Walkway will not only boost property values because of the added amenity in the neighborhood, but will draw residents and visitors to enjoy a low-impact stroll to the marina businesses and surrounding Sewaren businesses.”
