Village Park

From the website

For over seven years the VNA and Village community have worked toward transforming the long-closed, abandoned and neglected pocket park into a reinvented open space that is unlike any Jersey City has ever seen. In the Fall of 2009, a competitive and exciting pro-bono design competition was conducted via a Request for Proposal and called for feedback and suggestions from Village residents.

At the October 2009 VNA meeting, over 60 attendees viewed four amazing visions for Village Park and overwhelmingly selected Future Green Studio for an imaginative modern design that uses recycled and sustainable materials; provides playful passive sections for children; features restive, meditative elements like a central lawn, walking paths; and pays respect and homage to the neighborhood’s Italian-American heritage.
