Grover Cleveland Park Conservancy

The Grover Cleveland Conservancy was formed in 2001 by a group of community members concerned with the upkeep and maintenance of Grover Cleveland Park. All officers, trustees, and advisory board members are volunteer community members.

Designed to cater to the public for year-round recreation, Grover Cleveland Park was carved out of the surrounding West Essex meadows and farmland. In the early 1900s, when the park was being considered, local farmers were using quite a lot of the area as pastures and fields. The county hired the landscape architectural firm, founded by Frederick Law Olmsted, to design Grover Cleveland Park.

Today, the park boasts walking/running paths, a fish-stocked pond, tennis, bocce ball and shuffleboard courts, children’s playground, open fields, a baseball diamond, and a picnic grove. The goal of the GCPC is to restore the park using the original Olmsted design as a guideline.
