THE VILLAGE PARK IS NOW COMPLETE!

Future Green Studio designed the public park located in the heart of the Italian Village of Jersey City, NJ. Village Park seeks to bridge the historical nature of the neighborhood with a forward-thinking park design, drawing on themes of sustainability and the imagination. In salvaging existing park materials including concrete slabs, paving bricks, and steel bench slats, the design imbues the park with a sense of spatial memory and environmental conscientiousness.
