Located in the town center of Secaucus just of the corner of Paterson Plank Rd. and Plaza Center Drive, Buchmuller Park is the neighborhood park that has been revitalized in the last few years to be the summer venue for outdoor events in Secaucus. Dedicated to the memory of Albert P. Buchmuller Jr. for his efforts with the Kiwanis Club of Secaucus. Today the park boasts a new band shell and stage and sunken amphitheater that suits its calendar of outdoor concerts well. The remainder of the park features a new playground and snack bar area and a skating rink.

In 2004, HSC began a pilot program with the town of Secaucus to bring one of our Shakespeare performances as a new feature of their expanding outdoor programs. In August, we performed a production of Shakespeare's fantastical comedy Cymbeline to a very receptive audience. Pictures of that performance can be seen here.
