HOBOKEN, NJ - Having been closed for nearly three months, precious field space in Hoboken is now set to be reopened to the public.
"Even though not all of our recreational activities are back up and running, we are re-opening Sinatra Park and 1600 Park on Monday, June 22 during certain hours for open field time for residents," said Mayor Ravi Bhalla.
Over the past few weeks, the fields have been used for organized events and to accommodate fitness classes. Monday marks the first time they will be open for general public use.
"Both parks will have a capacity limit of 40 to prevent overcrowding, with staff on hand to help monitor the capacity. Activities in small groups and families are permitted such as throwing a baseball, kicking a soccer ball, and more that allow for social distancing, while athletic competitions and pick-up games are currently prohibited," said Bhalla. "Face masks should be worn to enter and exit the both parks, and are strongly suggested to be worn when near others on the field."
The open field time is for Hoboken residents only.
Sinatra Park: Monday – Friday 1:00pm to 4:00pm, Saturday – Sunday 1:00pm – 7:00pm
1600 Park: Monday – Friday 1:00pm to 4:00pm, Saturday – Sunday 1:00pm – 7:00pm
This schedule is in effect for June 22 through July 31, and may be subject to change.
