The Park also features the historic Central Railroad of New Jersey Terminal that includes a two-mile promenade. It attracts over four million visitors a year. The park has also aided in the development of New Jersey's metropolitan area. Transforming old railroads and industial buildings into this park in 1976 has definitely been a positive thing for this area.
