CHATHAM, NJ - Hoping to cash in on the Morris County Trail Construction Program, the Borough of Chatham Council approved a $100,000 grant application to fund a pedestrian trail at Garden Park at its regular meeting on Monday night.

According to Vince DeNave, borough engineer, the one-third mile trail would ring Garden Park and be made out of the same pervious asphalt used for the trail at Shepard Kollock Park in Chatham.
