Situated adjacent to the Hackensack Riverfront Walkway and the expansive Stephen R. Gregg Park, Richard Rutkowski Park is perfectly suited for leisurely strolls, biking, scooter riding, picnics, and bird watching. There are 2 quarter mile paths to explore – a paved and largely shaded biking path and a mostly sun exposed boardwalk along the water. The park isn’t heavily trafficked, so it can be relaxing and quiet and a wonderful breath of fresh air.

Teeming with wildlife, visitors can spot wood ducks, sea gulls, red-winged blackbirds, robins, sparrows, and even egrets and herons here. There are also dozens of butterflies of all different varieties thanks to the lovely butterfly garden. There are different types of flowers in bloom every few months, be sure to check it out during every season to see!
