Hamilton Park is a neighborhood in Historic Downtown in Jersey City, Hudson County, New Jersey, United States, centered on a park with the same name. Hamilton Park is located west of Newport, north of Harsimus Cove, north and east of The Village and south of Boyle Plaza. The Victorian age park is located between Eighth Street and Ninth Street and Hamilton Place on the west and McWilliams Place on the East. Like the Van Vorst Park neighborhood to the south, this quiet park is surrounded by nineteenth century brownstones.[3] The park underwent renovations completed in 2010.[4]


The park produces several events throughout the year, some of which include

  • A Shakespeare in the Park series by the Hudson Shakespeare Company. The professional company produces one Shakespeare or classical show for each summer month.
  • Hamilton Park Street Festival - Takes place usually in June of each year
