A Letter from OurPresident

A letter from our president about what’s been happening at the reservoir.

Construction at the Reservoir Begins

Thank you everyone for all of your support these past eight plus months in amending the City’s Site Safety Improvements Plan for the Reservoir’s upper trails.
We absolutely could not have done this without your help. Though construction does mean that the Reservoir is closed this season (we will announce when we have a reopening date), this also means that the site is closer than ever to being opened as a fully accessible green space for all!

The Reservoir’s last day of the season was 10/25/2020. The site is closed for public access until further notice due to the City of Jersey City’s Site Safety Improvements Project. The Alliance will continue to offer programming and events off-site and online.
