Congratulations to the City of Linden – A 2014 Great Place in New Jersey!
Great Places represent the gold standard in terms of having a true sense of place, cultural and historical interest, community involvement, and a vision for the future. They support their local economies and add value to their communities. “Great places don’t happen by accident – they’ve been planned for, designed, and maintained,” states APA-NJ President, Charles Latini, Jr. “APA-NJ chose to implement this program because our great places deserve attention, and other communities can look to these shining examples as best practices.”
Hawk Rise Sanctuary, City of Linden
This Great Public Space resides in the City of Linden, whose community understood the opportunity presented by an underutilized place and reimagined it into something wonderful.
The greater part of Hawk Rise Sanctuary sits on the site of a former landfill, remediated so that it now provides environmental benefits while addressing human needs for open space.
