Trenton to Receive $1.2 Million in Green Acres Grant Funding

Trenton, N.J. – Mayor W. Reed Gusciora announced today that the City of Trenton will receive $1.2 million in Green Acres support to help fund the Amtico Square redesign project, which will turn a former dumping site into a soccer field, skatepark, and other recreational space. 

"After years of planning and incorporating extensive community feedback, this project is finally coming to fruition," said Mayor Gusciora. "We are grateful that our state partners recognize how important this project is to a city that craves more youth engagement and safe recreational space." 

Governor Phil Murphy, N.J. Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) Commissioner Shawn M. LaTourette and Senator Brian P. Stack, announced last month more than $100 million in Green Acres program grants to improve urban parks, playgrounds, and open spaces throughout the state.

The Trenton project will transform the vacant industrial properties and brownfields in the Amtico Square area into new recreational space that includes a skate park with lighting and a shade structure, several multipurpose athletics courts, a parking lot, drainage, sidewalk improvements and a restored bridge. The bridge will also be rehabilitated to provide beautiful views of the creek.
