Kayak Day – Sunday, July 27th!


The Reservoir is having its first kayak day of the season this coming Sunday, July 27th! The event will run from 10:00am until 3:30pm. It is free for all ages but anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Although the event is free, we are suggesting a five dollar donation to help defray our rising insurance costs. The event is located at the Jefferson Avenue gate entrance of the Reservoir between Summit and Central Avenue. We hope to see you there!

Seeking a band for JC Fridays – September 5th!

The Jersey City Reservoir is seeking a band to play at our JC Fridays event on September 5th from 6pm-8pm! The only compensation we are able to provide is food at the event and our deepest gratitude but it is a great opportunity to gain exposure at a highly publicized public event. For anyone interested, please email jcreservoir@gmail.com with the subject line “JC Fridays Band” and write us your contact information. Please also attach or provide a link to a sample of your work. The deadline for submissions is Wednesday, July 23rd by midnight. Thank you and please share with all your friends and family!

The Story of Reservoir 3

Tess O’Brien created a fantastic video chronicling Reservoir #3′s journey to the present day. This fourteen minute clip shows how the Reservoir has transformed in over ten years from the clean up in 2003, to the fight to preserve the Reservoir in 2006, to educational and recreational programs at the Reservoir today.

Summer STEM Events Starting at the Reservoir!

STEM logo

The Reservoir’s summer STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) events will begin Saturday, May 10th! These are weekly events designed to introduce children between the ages of 10 to 14 to topics such as solar aerators, water ecology, history of our drinking water, adventure walks, and much more.

They will be held on Saturdays from 8am until 10am and there is a limit of only 10 participants per event. Parents must drop-off and pick-up their children at these events and are required to leave a cell phone number to contact in case of emergency. In order to sign up for an event, you must go to our STEM page here, click on the event you wish to attend and register for a free ticket.

The STEM events are inspired by the success of Project Reservoir, a multi-year project by the students of P.S. #28 in Jersey City to “help revitalize and transform an abandoned local reservoir into a first class, state recognized recreation and education center.” The students involved with Project Reservoir has since won numerous state-wide and national competitions, including the top prize in the Disney Planet Challenge in 2012. Check out all their amazing work and what they have in store for the future here at their website. Many of these STEM events will be led by the student team from Project Reservoir with the help of adult supervisors.

Check our STEM page frequently as we update events and open up tickets to be claimed!
