CITY OF HOBOKEN UPDATE ON SINATRA PARK AND DOG PARKS

The reconstruction of Sinatra Park is nearing completion, with the turf for Sinatra Field being installed this week.

“The turf is down and we will soon be reopening Sinatra Field and connecting a new segment of our waterfront walkway so that we will have a continuous multiuse path from the Jersey City border to the skate park at Castle Point,” said Mayor Dawn Zimmer. “Once the installation of the nets and the railings is completed, then the field will be opened up for use.”

The park is being completed under budget, and there are no overtime costs for the completion of this field because the contract included a liquidated damages clause with a $1,500 per day penalty for failure to complete the park by the agreed-upon completion date.

“Thanks to the fine work of our City’s legal team, the contractor has worked hard at their own expense to complete this park as quickly as possible,” added Mayor Zimmer.

Dog Parks

Renovations to the dog parks in Church Square Park, Stevens Park and Elysian Park are underway and will include canopy structures for shade and shelter for inclement weather, new benches, fences, gates, pet waste bag dispensers, and improved dog water fountain. The stone dust surface previously used at dog runs is being replaced with ¾” pea gravel. 

“Thank you to our dog owners for your patience as we complete these important renovations to make sure our City is as dog friendly as possible,” added Mayor Zimmer.

    Lets not twist the reason why we have Dog Parks. It is NOT to be "as dog friendly as possible".
    It's to be People Friendly!

    In other words we need Dog Parks to keep in one place all the jerk off dog owners who don't clean up their dog crap. It is a very similar concept to those glass caged rooms we see in the Vegas airport for all the smokers. (and not unlike subsidized housing if you want to expand on the thought)

    Why do my tax dollars pay for other people's hobbies. Yes, a dog is a hobby (guides aside)
