Southwest Resiliency Park Expansion

In September 2022, Mayor Ravi S. Bhalla and the City of Hoboken unveiled the final concept design for the expanded Southwest Resiliency Park that will serve the dual purpose of providing recreation space and flood mitigation. The expansion doubles the size of the existing one-acre Southwest Resiliency Park at 58 Jackson Street, and will include six pickleball courts, a centrally located shaded plaza with tables and seating, a playground for children, a full basketball court, restroom facilities, and rain garden plantings. The expanded Southwest Resiliency Park will more than double the stormwater detention capacity in the existing park, withholding a total of 460,000 gallons of stormwater to mitigate area flooding during heavy rain events through above and below-ground infrastructure. 

Southwest Park Expansion (formerly known as Block 10) will be closed on Monday, December 5, 2022, and Tuesday, December 6, 2022, between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., weather permitting, for a geotechnical investigation required to complete the engineering design.
