Have you noticed the transformation at Jackson Woods Park in Long Branch? The City of Long Branch and the community have joined together to bring a dynamic new vision for the park to reality. The 13-acre oasis, located near the oceanfront within the north-end neighborhood of Long Branch, provides a quiet place of reflection and safe haven for wildlife within an urban setting.
When the park fell into disrepair, a group of residents took action. The vision is for nature and the arts to thrive together and create a quiet place for reflection for visitors! The City of Long Branch has joined forces with the community and together they are working towards the revitalization of the park into a thriving and well-maintained space for people of all ages to enjoy. Improvements to date include a gazebo, improved parking area and extensive trail improvements.
Volunteers have already collected tons of trash and planted hundreds of daffodil bulbs. But the transformation has just begun! Conservation and arts groups are working together to bring sculptures, poetry and art elements into the park.
Help bring the vision to reality with your tax-deductible donation dedicated towards the improvements at Jackson Woods Park.
“Jackson Woods is a labor of love, sweat equity and joy. The vision is to create a haven for wildlife and a serene area aesthetically pleasing and suitable for seniors, young adults and children to enjoy the park” ~Kathy Buchan, Jackson Woods Community organizer.
