The City of Hoboken has been awarded $600,000 in Green Acres funding for improvements to Elysian Park.
A community meeting for Phase 2 of improvements to Legion Park (located at 1225 Willow Ave) will be announced shortly.
To date, renovations and repairs have been completed at Jackson Street Park, Jefferson Park, Legion Park, Madison Street Park, the waterfront skate park, and Mama Johnson Field. The playground area and basketball courts have been renovated at Church Square Park, and the restroom facilities are also scheduled for renovation. Acrylic surfacing of the basketball courts will take place in the spring. Construction is continuing to rebuild Sinatra Field and Castle Point Park on the waterfront. Construction has begun on Phase 1 of 1600 Park and Hoboken Cove, which will include a multi-use field, lighting, bleachers and leaning rails, a dog run, restrooms, bike racks, and a slide hill and viewing mound. The Little League Field at Stevens Park will be resurfaced using a $250,000 Hudson County Open Space grant. Batting cages will also be installed. The City is also in the process of acquiring land for a Southwest Park.
