The mission of the Jersey City Parks Coalition is to empower residents to develop, renovate, use and maintain their community parks and public spaces of Jersey City; thereby revitalizing neighborhoods and lifting communal and human spirits.
The Coalition aspires to build a great city-wide organization that sets the standard for, and spreads the principles of, democracy through community empowerment and the principles of world-class park management for the betterment of all residents.
The Coalition is committed to sustaining this operating model to provide a legacy for future generations of Jersey City residents and all users of park and public space.
The Jersey City Parks Coalition is a private, not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization founded in 2005 that assists in the development and maintenance of Jersey City’s parks and public spaces. All residents are welcome to join any of the member organizations working on parks and public spaces near you.
Thanks to the generosity of many individuals, corporations, foundations, the County of Hudson and the City of Jersey City, the Coalition has, just from 2005 to the present, raised and invested more than a half million dollars into our City’s parks and public spaces, making it a model for urban park & public space renewal and creation.
