A second community meeting to discuss redesign plans for Feaster Park and Pittman Park has been announced for 6 p.m. Tuesday, October 2 at Unity Square Community Center, 81 Remsen Avenue.
The redesign of Feaster Park and Pittman Park are part of the City’s strategic plan to renew and re-energize its parks system, using our New Brunswick Parks Action Plan as a guide, created in partnership with experts at Rutgers University and the Trust for Public Land.
This effort began in 2016 with the comprehensive redesign of Recreation Park and has continued with improvements scheduled all the way through 2018 and into 2019.
New amenities from over the past few summer months include new spray pads at Alice Jennings Archibald Park and Joyce Kilmer Park; new Fitness Courts at Alice Jennings Archibald Park and Buccleuch Park; a new community gardening program at Recreation Park; new plantings and landscaping; improvements to playing fields and courts and more.
A prior public meeting was held on September 12 in which the public discussed ideas with City representatives for plans for the two parks. All are invited to attend the October 2 meeting to learn more or offer ideas.
