Grover Cleveland Park is
100 years old!

1913 - 2013


Grover Cleveland Park Conservancy celebrated 10 years of service in 2011!




A New Jersey not-for-profit organization founded in 2001 dedicated to the maintenance, restoration and enhancement of the Grover Cleveland Park located in Caldwell and Essex Fells, New Jersey in partnership with the Essex County Park System.


Improving the park

Grover Cleveland Park is significantly improved since the inception of the Conservancy in 2001. Many  upgrades were financed by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection  Green Acres grants in 2003 and 2004 and Essex County. Other projects were financed by private donations and grants from Starbucks and the NJ Deptartment of Community Affairs.  The upgrades were identified jointly by the Grover Cleveland Park Conservancy and Essex County with safety as the major driving factor. The two have worked closely on project details and are pleased with the results. 




The Annual Meeting was February 25. Plans were laid out for landscape improvements: remediate pond invasive weeds, begin process to remove invasive species.

Additionally, three Trustee positions were filled by two returning trustees, Loren Betros and Susan Zayas and former Trustee Diane Mensinger. The new slate of officers are: President Lisa Garrity, Vice President Susan Zayas, Treasurer Loren Betros and Secretary Caroline Mescia.
