COMMUNITY

Kids enjoying Gussy PlaygroundThe City of Jersey City is proud to be the most diverse city in the state offering a unique place to live and visit within its 15-square-miles and 6 wards. The 265,000 residents make for an array of ethnicities and cultures.
Once a city driven by immigrants working in the shipping and manufacturing industries, Jersey City has transformed into a modern urban community. Old factories have been repurposed and reborn into office buildings and housing units, and abandoned rail yards are now landscaped parks. Jersey City’s vibrant arts cultures and diversity, and commitment to collaboration create an unparalleled quality of life for residents and businesses alike.

Cosmo “Gussy” Desanto Park Playground Reopens after Much Needed Renovations

Desanto Park Ribbon Cutting

The new and improved Cosmo “Gussy” Desanto Park playground has been reopened for kids of all ages to enjoy. The park’s previous playground was outdated and unserviceable. Local community groups and the Jersey City Parks Coalition worked together with the City to decide on a play structure and vendor for the project. The project work consisted of the installation of a playground structure, addition of new safety surface system, and new site furnishings such as benches and trash cans. The Fulop Administration has made park creation, park renovation, and open space preservation a priority during the past four years. In addition to the opening of the City’s largest municipal park, Berry Lane Park, the Administration has completed several smaller park improvements in every neighborhood.
