Washington Park Improvements – Jersey City NJ

Description

According to the Washington Park Association (WPA), the Works Progress Administration (same abbreviation) helped Washington Park “[take] its current shape.”

The Association notes, “(The Washington Park Association chose their name wisely when they picked WPA for our abbreviation.)”

The details of this project are unknown to Living New Deal.

Part of Bergen County’s parks system, Washington Park straddles the border between Jersey City and Union City, N.J., and is still in active use.
