We’re excited as you are that our Weehawken Pool is open for the 2022 summer season. However, access to the pool and to the nearby tennis courts, track, and other recreation facilities continues to be a safety and security challenge for many residents. The most common concerns we hear from residents are that it is unsafe to ride their bicycle to the pool from anywhere in Weehawken and that locking your bike up is not a secure nor accessible experience.
To solve these safety and security issues, we propose 1) installing a protected bike lane along Port Imperial Boulevard (River Road) to alleviate the issue of safety, 2) while also installing multiple bike racks at the immediate entrance to the pool facility to address the issue of security.
For the next steps, please answer our petition to tell us if you support making access to the Weehawken Township Municipal pool safer and more secure for all residents.
I bike and want safer, and more secure access to Weehawken Recreation Facilities by bicycle
I want protected bike lane access to and from Weehawken’s Recreation facilities on the Weehawken waterfront and the ability to secure my bicycle to a bike rack during my visit.
Having safer access to the facility and security during my visit will enable me to enjoy the pool, tennis courts, track, and other facilities without risking my life or having my bicycle at risk of theft.
I believe that all residents, no matter what form of transportation they choose, should have equitable options and want the Township of Weehawken to take these actions.
