Marsh View Pavilion

2462 CLUI photo.An elevated promontory extending into the marsh from the headquarters of the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission leads to the Marsh View Pavilion, which is surrounded by canted plaques providing interpretive captions for the views of the marsh and the landfills. The Commission headquarters is located on the Kingsland Impoundment, a 90-acre bermed enclosure in the swamp, filled mostly with open water. The Impoundment was slated to become a landfill in the 1970s, but was instead purchased to be the agency’s headquarters and a natural preserve. It is now part of Richard W. DeKorte Park, which has a number of trails and viewing areas around the impoundment.
