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. 

The Marsh is named for the Abbott Farm National Historical Landmark, a federal designation recognizing its importance of one of the most significant archeological sites on the east coast.  In the late 19th century, Charles Conrad Abbott, a writer, naturalist, and amateur archeologist drew the attention of the world to Marshlands through his collecting of artifacts and writings speculating on the antiquity of man in the new world.
