Supporting Recreational Activities and Cleaning up Parks

The best way to keep kids off the street where they might get into trouble is to give them fun alternatives. I want to make sure our hardworking school teachers, after-school volunteers and staff have the best indoor and outdoor resources available, so Trenton’s youth can enjoy playing sports year round.

Our parks should be a safe place for everyone to enjoy, and that means better surveillance and police presence, but it also means a renewed commitment to keeping the parks clean, through community cleanups, led by the Department of Public Works, Parks, and Recreation. With their rich history, Trenton’s parks can and should be travel destinations. My administration will make the investments in our parks needed to ensure they return to being safe, beautiful spaces for Trenton kids, seniors and families to enjoy.
