The Double Dutch Bus Rides into Atlantic City

Last Edited:

A couple of jump ropes helped to bring the Atlantic City community together this weekend for a fun competition.

More than 100 people of all ages gathered in the newly renovated Brown's Park on Saturday, June 10th, to participate in a Double Dutch competition.

According to our friends at Route 40, the event also celebrated the rebirth of the community and re-branding of a notorious park that families never thought would be safe for their kids.

Brown's Park, which was widely known as a hotbed of drugs and criminal activity, reopened last month after a $1.5 million renovation project that has given it new life. 

The double-dutch competition, organized by Princess Incorporated, is just one of many events city officials hope the park will host.
