City of Hoboken launches online survey for Maritime Park

The City of Hoboken today launched an online survey to gather public input for the concept design of Maritime Park. The survey follows the first community meeting held on April 4, 2023, that officially kicked off the public planning process for the new waterfront park.  

To take the online survey, go to hobokennj.gov/maritimeparksurvey. Paper copies of the survey are available at the Office of Constituent Services in Hoboken City Hall,94 Washington St. The survey is scheduled to close on Tuesday, April 18, at 6 p.m.

“As always, we are including a robust public process to determine the amenities of our open spaces, and nowhere is this more important than the design of Maritime Park,” said Mayor Ravi S. Bhalla. “We have worked incredibly hard to acquire this site and we will work even harder to ensure that it is a design that our community wants and needs. I look forward to working with everyone on this in the weeks and months ahead!”

The design team will use feedback from the survey, community meeting, and future public engagement to create concept designs for Maritime Park that include features and amenities reflective of the community’s needs.  

Maritime Park will be constructed on the Hudson River waterfront at the former Union Dry Dock site. The park is the last remaining section of the Hudson River Waterfront Walkway yet to be connected. Once a final concept design is created and the park is erected, the City will have a completely publicly accessible waterfront from Weehawken Cove to Pier A Park.  

For more information on the project, go to hobokennj.gov/maritimepark.

Hoboken community members provided input for the future design of Maritime Park at a public meeting on April 4, 2023.
