Below are updates on the proposed amenities at the temporary "pop-up park" as a part of the Southwest Resiliency Park expansion on Block 10, and community meeting on traffic circulation improvements in Southwest Hoboken
Southwest Resiliency Park “pop-up park” options
Mayor Ravi S. Bhalla and Councilman Ruben Ramos encourage residents to provide input into the proposed amenities for the Southwest “temporary pop-up park”, which the City aims to construct by this summer. The City has proposed two options for the temporary pop-up park on Block 10, with amenities including a playground, pickleball courts, a basketball court, shade and tables, community garden, programmable space, and more. The temporary pop-up park will remain while the City begins the design and eventual construction of the permanent Southwest Resiliency Park.
Residents who would like to provide input into the temporary pop-up park amenities who were not able to attend last week’s community meeting are invited to fill out the following survey by clicking here.

Earlier this month, Mayor Bhalla and Councilman Ramos announced an agreement with Academy Bus to acquire an additional acre of land to double the size of the current Southwest Resiliency Park. Hoboken will acquire “Block 10” for $11 million from Academy, which sits adjacent to the current Southwest Resiliency Park. The City will finance the acquisition utilizing various grants and the Hoboken Open Space Trust Fund, with no impact on the 2021 municipal budget.
Southwest Hoboken traffic circulation improvements
Mayor Bhalla invites residents to a virtual community meeting Wednesday April 28 at 7:00 pm to discuss planned improvements to traffic circulation routes in Southwest Hoboken. The Bhalla administration has collaborated with Hudson County, with the support of the City Council, on planned circulation changes to Paterson Avenue, Marshall Street, and two blocks of 2nd Street between Marshall Street and Jackson Street.
Members of the public can view the meeting streamed live via the City of Hoboken Facebook and YouTube pages, or participate via the Zoom webinar (instructions below)
