14th Street Viaduct’s New Chapter: Community Meets to Discuss Pickleball Courts Proposal

HOBOKEN — A joint initiative by Hudson County and the City of Hoboken will potentially introduce a new recreational activity under the historic 14th Street Viaduct. A community meeting is scheduled for Monday, Aug. 21, at 6 p.m. at 14th and Adams Streets, inviting residents to engage in conversations about introducing pickleball to the space below the Viaduct.

The County’s draft proposal centers around the installation of two temporary pickleball courts, complete with moveable fencing. This innovative solution aims to strike a balance between everyday recreational activities and regularly scheduled events such as the much-loved weekly farmer’s market. By ensuring that the fencing remains moveable, space constraints during these events can be avoided.

It’s worth noting that separate fencing has been established recently beneath the Viaduct. This was exclusively for the County’s lighting upgrade project, and residents will be pleased to know it will be dismantled this week.

Owned by Hudson County, the 14th Street Viaduct serves as a vital link and public space. Its evolution with community input remains a top priority, ensuring its relevance and utility for all residents.

Everyone is encouraged to attend the meeting and share their thoughts on this proposed venture.
