JERSEY CITY, NJ – The Board of Trustees of the Hamilton Park Conservancy, a new 501c3 non-profit organization formed to help maintain, preserve and protect the downtown park, announces the launch of its first website, http: //www.hamiltonparkconservancy.org

The Victorian-era Hamilton Park is the centerpiece of the Hamilton Park Historic District, which was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979. Completely renovated in 2010, the five-plus acre park includes a central gazebo, playground, children’s splash pad, tennis and basketball courts and two dog runs. The park was named for founding father Alexander Hamilton by his friend and fellow federalist, John B. Coles.

Elected officers of the Board of Trustees are: Yvonne Thurman-Dogruer, chair; Bob McHugh, vice chair; Travis Skinner, secretary; and Christopher Burt, treasurer.

Other elected trustees include: Jan A. Nordland, Patricia Rosenberg, Paul Silverman, Sawyer Smith, Robert Vivo, and Gregor Zore.

“This website is an important start to our new communication strategy. We want to let the community know we’re here to help keep this Park a vibrant, safe and fun part of our neighborhood,” said Thurman-Dogruer.
