Everyone knows Hoboken is lacking in the parks department. But us northwestern Hoboken residents are very lucky to have Columbus Park just a short distance away. Here's a map of where it is:
There are so many cool things to do in Columbus park- plenty of space to play catch, run around with your dogs, or play with the little ones on the awesome swing sets they have. There are also two public tennis courts attached. I have no idea where my tennis racket is at this point, having moved around so much, but it'd be fun to do a little back hand soon. Maybe it's in my parents' garage?
Also pictured in the far distance is the stil being built 1000 Jefferson. What an amazing location to live if you have kids and/or pets.
If you have a minute you should definitely check out these 360 degree pictures of most of our Hoboken parks. It's a quicktime .mov file put together by Joseph A. Corrado:
