HOBOKEN NW RESILIENCY PARK
In 2016, the City of Hoboken acquired 6 acres in Northwest Hoboken to transform a former industrial site into the city’s largest public park. The Northwest Resiliency Park will build upon the City’s ongoing efforts to integrate resiliency into park projects, such as the Southwest Park and 7th & Jackson Park.
The Northwest Resiliency Park will manage at least one million gallons of stormwater. It will play an important role in the mitigation of flooding from frequent storm events and help to relieve the overtaxed combined sewer system.
On top of the stormwater management system is a series of rolling hills, lawns for gathering, sport fields, a community hub, and large play valley. The valley is home to giant treehouse climbing structures, huge slides, swings, sand and water play, and a climbing wall reminiscent of the adjacent Palisades, with plenty of places for caregivers to picnic, sit, and gather.
