Update on Northwest Park construction | Sinatra Summer Streets returns on Sunday

Northwest Resiliency Park update
Construction is scheduled to begin on the permanent 5 acre Northwest Resiliency Park in September. In preparation for the construction, geotechnical borings will be conducted at the current pop-up park on August 26-28, causing the pop-up park to be closed from 8 AM - 4 PM each day, reopening each evening. The pop-up park will be permanently closed, and park features relocated beginning September 9.
As a reminder, the permanent Northwest Resiliency Park will become Hoboken’s largest park and will include above ground green infrastructure and a flood detention system underground. The park will have the capacity to withhold up to 2 million gallons of rainwater during storms to alleviate flooding. In addition, the park will include a lawn area, ice skating rink, pavilion and shade canopy, multi-purpose athletic field, play valley and fitness loop, and more.
Sinatra Summer Streets
This Sunday, August 25, Sinatra Summer Streets returns to the City of Hoboken. From 8 am until 5 pm, Sinatra Drive will be closed to vehicles between 4th Street and 11th Street, giving everyone an opportunity to enjoy a fully-connected waterfront walkway. In the spirit of promoting expanded public space in Hoboken, Bike Hoboken will also be hosting a 5-mile bike tour that will include the proposed route of the Hoboken Green Circuit, a linear park that would provide a continuous, multi-use recreation path on the west side of the City, mirroring the existing waterfront walkway located along Sinatra Drive. Bring your bikes and helmets to the area in front of the fountain at Pier A Park to participate. If you don’t have a bike, you can rent one from the nearby Jersey Bike docking station. The start time for the bike tour is 11 AM.
