Major Park Improvements Taking Place All Over North Bergen

Mayor Nicholas Sacco, Parks and Recreation Commissioner Hugo Cabrera, and their team are working to bring significant improvements to parks and open spaces all over the township.

A long awaited new public park on Paterson Plank Road is now scheduled to be built this spring as part of a total revitalization of the area. Alongside the planned Hudson Mews development – a luxury residential complex that is currently under construction – the park will dramatically improve the neighborhood. Township officials negotiated an agreement with the developer of the adjacent residential complex to assist in building the park, saving taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars in construction costs.

Below are some of the great improvements coming soon to North Bergen parks:
