Urban Greening and Beautification

Weasel Brook Community Garden

Gardens are not the only way to beautify neighborhoods – green spaces come in all shapes and sizes.


In 2019, City Green collaborated with Passaic County to create The Weasel Brook Community Garden. Located in Weasel Brook Park, 1 Westervelt Place in Clifton, the Garden is a beautiful, newly built fenced-in space providing community garden space and educational programming for Passaic residents. The Garden contains 26 garden plots available for local residents. 


Passaic County and City Green are excited to welcome our neighbors to this new garden at one of our county’s beautiful parks. We recognize the importance of public gardens in providing access to healthy food and serving as an open space for residents to take pleasure in. We hope to start the growing season with you! 

Applications for Weasel Brook Plots are NOW OPEN! To apply for a garden plot, click the application link below and return to City Green 171 Grove St. Clifton, NJ 07013
