Assunpink Creek Greenway

Trenton City, Mercer County, NJ

As part of its restoration efforts for the Assunpink Creek area, Trenton is planning a 99-acre urban park and greenway that will include several baseball and soccer fields, playgrounds, picnic areas, tennis and basketball courts, and an 18-hole chip and putt golf course.

The accompanying photos displayed here were taken along the Creek as it borders the Mill Hill neighborhood, a National Register Historic District.

The revitalization effort is helping restore the creek's natural floodplain by cleaning several brownfields along the water's edge.

Historical sites that will have improved access through Trenton's brownfields redevelopment efforts include a blacksmith shop that has been in operation since the 1800s, an historical mansion, and an African American cemetery dating back to the 1700s.
