Palmyra Cove Nature Park

The Palmyra Cove Nature Park consists of approximately 300+ acres along the Delaware River south of the Tacony-Palmyra Bridge. The property is owned by the State of New Jersey as tidelands and is managed by the Burlington County Bridge Commission as a nature park. In conjunction with the Commission, ACT Engineers coordinated contact with federal, state, & municipal agencies to develop the management agreement and the Master Plan for the park. As part of development of the Master Plan, ACT completed various environmental applications to NJDEP & USACE. Subsequent to the approval of the management agreement and Master Plan, ACT has completed various projects as part of the development of the park. Services that have been provided include land surveying, wetland delineation, permitting (including Wetlands & Waterfront Development and NJDOT) and design of 4,000 ft access road off Rt. 73, 5 miles of pedestrian paths, 100’ pedestrian bridge, approach boardwalks and design/construction management for construction of new Interpretive Center and trail network.
