About FVVP

Welcome to the Friends of Van Vorst Park

The Friends of Van Vorst Park (FVVP) is a not-for-profit 501(C) (3) Corp founded in 1991 that assists in the development and maintenance of the gardens and public spaces within Van Vorst Park in downtown Jersey City.

We’ve led the way with many park firsts in downtown, including the first historic park renovation, a dog run, computerized irrigation systems, the community empowerment approach to park development, and spectacular gardens with architectural details.

Throughout the summer we have special musical events, Shakespeare in the Park, a farmers’ market, Films in Park with the VVPA, and much more.

We are always looking for community members who would like to volunteer in maintaining the gardens,  join our organization, make suggestions regarding additional events, or ways we can improve our oasis in an urban setting.

Please call Marc Wesson @ 201 433-6553 or e-mail to: marcwesson7@gmail.com for additional information.
