MAYOR HEALY: “IT’S AN OASIS”

Historic Reservoir to Remain Green - a Park
for Families

JERSEY CITY- Mayor Jerramiah T. Healy and State DEP
Commissioner Lisa Jackson announced that the defunct
Jersey City Reservoir 3 that is located in the
Heights section of the city will become a
center-city oasis, a natural reserve and family park
for city residents.

Healy’s announcement brought an end to the long
debated issue regarding the future of Reservoir 3, a
13.3 acre parcel of land that some envisioned as a
school, new housing, a sports complex, parking
garage or a mini-mall. It was debate that galvanized
many on all fronts where big business and
development was often pitted against
preservationists, historians and those seeking to
add a little more green to the state’s second
largest city.

“This thing has been debated for a long time, an
issue that has endured through many administrations.
But now the time is right to decide its future,”
Healy said.

“The development in our city is storied and has been
the key to our renaissance here, but it is just as
important to provide open space for passive
recreation, walking, jogging, and an opportunity
for people to fish, canoe and appreciate nature,”
Healy added. “We have that opportunity and we are
going to make the best of it.”

Distinguished by its massive stone walls built in
the formidable Egyptian Revival style, the Reservoir
has become a contained lake of sorts and a sanctuary
for fish and fowl. Many believed the area could be
used for both housing and a mini-park. That debate
is now over.

“The Jersey City Reservoir Preservation Alliance
applauds Mayor Jerramiah Healy and Council President
Mariano Vega for their vision in preserving the
Reservoir as a natural and historic park, and looks
forward to working with the City for the best
possible plan for the Reservoir, ” said Steve
Latham, Jersey City Reservoir Preservation Alliance.
“We are fortunate to have this jewel here in the
middle of our densely populated city. This is a
great opportunity to open a world-class park for the
benefit of all - from urban schoolchildren
connecting with nature, to seniors getting a respite
from the bustle of the city, to people boating and
fishing on the lake, to families enjoying a quiet
afternoon, to visitors discovering industrial age
history.”

The Reservoir was closed in the 1970’s and it’s
usage as a municipal water source ended completely
in 1992.

Baseball fields sit locked up and unused for most of the year.

And if baseball was really the answer to youth drugs and crime problems, the DOminican Republic would be a much safer place.
