Lawn Renovation Program
The Hamilton Park Conservancy worked with the neighborhood and the Jersey City Department of Public Works’ Division of Parks and Forestry, to map out a long-term plan in the summer of 2015 to renovate the tired and overused lawn of Hamilton Park — a project which included tree trimming, improving the irrigation system, rehabilitating the grass, and effectively communicating with the neighborhood. In the fall of 2015, the HPC led efforts to get trees on the south side of the Park, and in March 2016 started the renovation of one of the most damaged lawns on the northwest side of the Park later moving to a second quadrant.
Fountain Garden Renovation Program
The Hamilton Park Conservancy in conjunction with the Hamilton Park Neighborhood Association maintains the replanting and preservation of the fountain gardens. Recently, Theo Hoerr of Terrain Work volunteered his time to redesign the gardens with plants that require minimal maintenance, can handle the park’s environmental conditions, and provide a colorful landscape every season.
