Enos Jones Park Redevelopment Plan
Our group has been working with the City and local developers for nearly two years as they create a Redevelopment Plan for the Enos Jones Park Area. As we've all experienced, there is much construction already underway, with other sites getting approval from the City.
Despite this, the plan will be a key vehicle in ensuring more thoughtful development on the open lots that remain, and more importantly, creating a significant opportunity for funds to be committed to the renovation of Enos Jones Park.
These potential funds can be added to the pledges we've already received and truly allow the park to thrive. To date we've secured pledge agreements totaling $200,000 from developers building in our community.
It's our hope that this RDP presents an opportunity for all the groups within the Enos Jones Park area to band together and work with the community and city to see Enos Jones Park become the kind of park that is the centerpiece of our neighborhood.

We value collaboration and partnership as the best way to see the Jones Park area flourish. We endeavor to keep strong and healthy relationships with others with an interest in Enos Jones Park. We work with:
- Hamilton Park Neighborhood Association
- Jersey City Planning and Zoning
- Jersey City Parks Coalition

The JPA was started by Kevin Gosa, Ed Pickett, Sarah Lacz, and Adam Polulak in 2015 to advocate for the particular issues the Jones Park area was facing with regards to development projects.
