Urban Greening and Beautification

Public Community Gardens

Passaic County and City Green are excited to welcome our neighbors to grow food at two new Community Garden sites located at some of our county's beautiful parks.


Weasel Brook Community Garden, located in Weasel Brook Park in Clifton, is a beautiful, newly built fenced-in space with 26 garden plots. Dundee Island Community Garden, located in Dundee Island Park in Passaic, is a part of a magnificent renovation project providing garden space and respite for residents. These public gardens are vital in providing access to healthy food and serving as an open space for Passaic County residents to take pleasure in. We hope to start the growing season with you!
