Family Friendly

Family Friendly

One of the things that sets Jersey City aside from other large, diverse cities is the fact that the city has an intimate neighborhood vibe and is known for being family friendly.  Whatever Jersey City lacks in backyard playgrounds, we make up for in spacious parks, indoor playgrounds, and a science center even New Yorkers come to check out. A variety of schools give parents the options to choose what’s best for their children and a wide range of after school learning centers and extracurricular classes help foster hobbies and activities. One Jersey City highlight are the incredible family-focused/family friendly events that occur throughout the calendar year which provides entertainment, education, and help to build a strong sense of community.
