Mulberry Commons

The Mulberry Commons is a $10 million dollar, 3-acre passive park directly across from the Prudential Center. In March 2016, Mayor Ras J. Baraka announced a request for proposal for the park design. An official ground breaking ceremony took place October 2, 2017 and official opening of the first phase of the park took place May 30, 2019. Phase II of the park calls for a footbridge of 0.5 miles (0.80 km) over McCarter Highway and the Northeast Corridor with direct access to Penn Station’s new entrance platform. It will also connect the Ironbound neighborhood via Ferry Street and as an ultimate connection to the under-construction Riverfront Park.
