RED BANK, NJ – This will be the last weekend for the Broadwalk, the pedestrian plaza created on Broad Street for the summer.
The last day is Sunday, October 2, confirmed RiverCenter Executive Director Bob Zuckerman.
In August, Red Bank Borough Council extended the Broadwalk past Labor Day to continue through October 2.
The Broadwalk opened on July 22, following the completion of a major road improvement project.
“Although our summer started late because of the construction project, we brought a lot of people to downtown Red Bank following the third season of Broadwalk,” Zuckerman said. RiverCenter is a non-profit organization that develops business and tourism in the borough.
The pedestrian and dining plaza is bounded by Front Street to the north and White Street to the south.
The Broadwalk concept of a pedestrian plaza and fall summer dining began in 2020 in response to COVID dining restrictions.
But now the idea is seen as a way to attract more interest in the beachless city’s summer dining and shopping options.
“In addition to great outdoor dining, we’ve also scheduled the Broadwalk this year with exercise classes, lots of kids’ activities, live music and more,” Zuckerman said.
“We look forward to bringing Broadwalk back in 2023 for season four,” he added.
