Newark, N.J. 9/1/2009: Mayor Cory A. Booker will join the Central Ward's Springfield community, The Trust for Public Land, donors, and partners to celebrate the first of three planned renovations of eight-acre Jesse Allen Park.
Today we are excited to open our city's first state-of-the-art skateboarding facility in our newly renovated Jesse Allen Park. Brick by brick, neighborhood by neighborhood, we are creating a better, stronger and prouder Newark." Jesse Allen Park is the second-largest City-owned park in Newark and is managed by the City's Recreation Department. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Newark's Central Ward Unit is adjacent to the park, has contributed to its development, and will support the City's programming. "Our work with the city and the community to renovate Jesse Allen Park underscores TPL's commitment to deliver great, safe, close-to-home recreational open space to Newark," said Anthony Cucchi, TPL's New Jersey state director. We are thrilled that Jesse Allen Park is getting the investment and improvements it-and the Central Ward-deserves." The project was completed in partnership with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Newark, Friends of Jesse Allen Park, the Springfield/Belmont Super Neighborhood Council, and the United States Tennis Association.
