Rivington residents, this summer you may have some extra space to get some sun, play Frisbee, walk the dog or go on a bike ride – the city is currently mulling over a 4-acre temporary “pop-up” park in northwest Hoboken. If you would like to share your feedback on the possible park, then you can email NorthwestPark@hobokennj.gov which will be used by the City’s planners to help decide which amenities should be featured at the pop-up park. You can also check out the possible layout at www.hobokennj.gov/nwpark.
If the pop-up park comes about, then it will stay in northwest Hoboken temporarily until another park, which will be 6.1 acres and also located in northwest Hoboken at the former BASF property, can open. The planning process for this park, which would be the city’s largest park, is anticipated to start in spring of this year. This park will also have an above-ground parking garage.
The temporary park is sure to be a lot of fun if it is approved this summer since it will have food trucks, fit course stations, community gardens, a bouldering and climbing wall, an events space, picnic tables, a water spray center for children, volleyball, tennis courts, childrens’ play equipment, a bocce ball area, a mural space and more.
Individuals or businesses interested in donations or sponsorship opportunities for the pop-up park can email NorthwestPark@hobokennj.gov. If you would love to see an additional park in your Rivington neighborhood, then be sure to share your two cents!
