Northwest Resiliency Park

In late 2016 the City of Hoboken acquired the former 6.1-acre BASF property in northwest Hoboken for use as a “resiliency park,” which is proposed to include at least 1 million gallons of underground stormwater detention, as well as a new above-ground parking garage, the first municipal garage in western Hoboken. The planning process for the permanent 5.4 acre park, which would be the city’s largest park, is anticipated to start in spring 2017.

Plans have been developed to create a temporary 4-acre “pop-up” park so that the community could start to enjoy the benefits of this site by the summer of 2017. The pop-up park is a temporary public space that is anticipated to remain open until construction begins on the permanent “resiliency park.”
