Options for Hoboken Pop-Up Park Discussed
Hoboken’s Director of Environmental Services Jennifer Gonzalez presented two design possibilities for a new popup park just west of the Southwest Resiliency Park, per the Hudson Reporter.
It would be on block 10, a parking lot owned by Academy Bus which the city has moved to purchase for $11 million to expand the Southwest Resiliency Park by an additional acre. While the city plans to go through a formal community design process over the next several months to design the park’s expansion, it also plans to allow the public to use the space this summer by installing a temporary popup park similar to how the city used the Northwest Resiliency Park site before construction on the permanent park began. The two options offer different layouts including a playground, pickleball courts, shade structures, and a community garden.
