Jersey City: Van Vorst Park

Neighborhood Description

Called “one of the most formal of Jersey City’s parks,” Van Vorst Park is located in the Van Vorst Historic District. It is located in the southern part of the area historically known as Harsimus and the former Township of Van Vorst. Originally landscaped by horticulturist Peter Henderson, it has been described as an example of a town square similar to Washington Square Park in lower New York City.
