Wilson Park Playground Returns with a Celebration Honoring Summit’s Emergency Management Team May 30

May 14, 2014 at 1:56 PM

SUMMIT, NJ - The Wilson Park Playground, destroyed during Hurricane Sandy, has been rebuilt and is an asset to Wilson School and the neighborhood once again.

The Summit Department of Community Programs, working with Wilson School Principal Felix Gill and the Wilson School PTO, have planned a celebration for the school, scheduled for May 30 at 2 p.m.  Members of the community are also invited to attend. 
Following the ribbon cutting and tree dedication, there will be a field day for the children and members of the community who attend.
As an example to the children of good citizenship, the Wilson PTO will dedicate newly planted trees at the playground site to the Summit Office of Emergency Management, as well as to the community volunteers that helped to keep Summit safe.

A plum and a yellow-wood tree will now enhance the playground experience. The plum tree will be dedicated to the Summit OEM team. The event is expected to conclude at 2:45 PM. Special children’s activities are planned with a few surprises as well.
The funding for the playground rehab was from insurance coverage, grants, and local capital funding.  The equipment was selected with the assistance of members of the Wilson Primary School PTO.

The Wilson Park Playground it located in Wilson Park 14 Beekman Terrace, next to the Board of Education Offices and Wilson Primary School.
Questions related to the playground or the very event should be directed to the Department of Community Programs at 908 / 277-2932, or
