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.
On March 3, Jeanne Kolva spoke about Olmsted Parks in Essex County to an audience of 71 at the W. Caldwell Library. This event kicked off the Grover Cleveland Park Conservancy's celebration of the Grover Cleveland Park's Centennial year.
