Bergen County Executive Tedesco Announces Parks Master Plan Community Information Sessions


Hackensack, N.J. – Bergen County Executive Jim Tedesco and the Bergen County Department of Parks (Parks) -- in collaboration with the Rutgers University Center of Urban Environmental Sustainability (CUES) -- announced the 2017 community workshop schedule for the Bergen County Parks Master Planning study.  The on-line survey for park users to provide their comments on the future of the Bergen County Parks system was also formally launched ( 


The Department of Parks and CUES have been working together to develop the County's Parks Master Plan. This plan will guide a new, bold and strategic vision for advancing the County’s parks and recreation resources to enhance the quality of life for county residents, workers and visitors who use the county parks.


The Parks Master Plan project team is interested in hearing residents’ ideas on the County’s overall parks system, including what is working well, areas that could use improvement, and ideas to be considered for implementation over the next two decades. All County residents are asked to participate in planning the County’s park system for the future. A variety of outreach tools are available to engage citizens, collect feedback and gather information to create the Parks Master Plan. The first community workshop will be held on Tuesday, January 10, 2017, at the Richard Rodda Community Center, Votee Park, Teaneck, N.J.
