See our proposal for a NEW PARK in BayonneClick here for a copy of the proposal.
Even though the land is in the hands of the developers, we still think they should include park space in their plans! We also expect a continuation of the Hudson Waterfront Walkway in the Harbor Station area. Join the Bayonne Nature Club and help secure more parks in Bayonne, NJ.
