Public Invited to Help Craft New Plans for Feaster and Pittman Parks


The public’s input is sought to help the City of New Brunswick and its partners plan for redesigns of Feaster Park and Pittman Park.

A community meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, September 12 at the newly renovated Paul Robeson Community School for the Arts, 199 Commercial 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.

All are welcome to attend the meeting on September 12 to learn more!
