The Greenest of Green Spaces! From open fields to the amazing cherry blossoms.
FHCA has partnered with the Care of the Park Movement, a legacy initiative of the Branch Brook Park Alliance in partnership with the County of Essex. Essex County is the primary steward of the park. FHCA’s Beautification Committee aims to work with and support the stakeholders in initiating conservation efforts and fun activities for all visitors to enjoy.
Care of the Park / Branch Brook Park Alliance
FHCA has made a commitment to oversee and maintain the Ballantine Gates area of Branch Brook Park. As a group, FHCA is coordinating Spring and Fall clean-up days at the Ballantine Gates. We seek volunteers to weed, rake, mulch and do general clean-up work. FHCA also hangs wreaths on the Ballantine gatehouses during the Christmas season.
FHCA volunteers plant and maintain the flower beds and trim shrubbery on the first island of Heller Parkway opposite the Althea Gibson Tennis Complex.
Renaissance Tree Project / NJ Tree Foundation
In conjunction with the NJ Tree Foundation, FHCA volunteers have helped plant more than 100 trees in our Forest Hill neighborhood. These trees are planted street-side and are free to residents who commit to caring for them for a minimum of two years. Tree plantings occur in the Spring and Fall.
FHCA volunteers paint over or remove graffiti from traffic control boxes and STOP signs at intersections within the Forest Hill Historic District.
