Mill Hill Park
Since the redevelopment of the lot at the corner of Front Street and South Broad Street in the 1970s from a department store to a park, Mill Hill Park today provides year-round recreation opportunities for visitors, residents and employees. Each December, the site is host to the annual Patriots Week reenactment of the Battle of Trenton. In the warmer months, Mill Hill Park is home to Trenton’s farmers market.
In August 2013, the City of Trenton advertised a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the planning and subsequent rehabilitation of the Douglass House which also includes plans for interpretive signage throughout Mill Hill Park. City Council formally awarded the contract to HMR Architects at their December 19, 2013 meeting. Hunter Research, Inc. produced a signage plan in May 2014 for HMR Architects and the City of Trenton, and was revised in July 2014.
