Mercer Park Improvements – Bayonne NJ

Description

The website for Hudson County, New Jersey writes that Mercer Park in Bayonne, N.J. “was named after General Hugh Mercer, a famous American Revolution figure known for his bravery at the Battle of Princeton. The Park’s development was made possible through Works Progress Administration (WPA) under the New Deal, which provided funds to employ local residents to work on the park.”
