CRANFORD - The Union County Board of County Commissioners will cut the ribbon on the new playground facilities at Nomahegan Park in Cranford on Sunday, April 18 at 11:00 a.m.
“As the weather gets warmer, families look to our local parks to safely have fun while staying active,” said County Commissioner Chairman Alexander Mirabella. “The Board of Commissioners is proud to give the County’s youngest residents another modern and safe place to play.”
According to the release, the playground renovations replaced existing equipment, and now there are two separate areas - one geared towards children ages 2-5 and another for children from ages 5-10. Both areas are fully-accessible, with play space for children of all abilities.
“Nomahegan Park has long been a special place for families in Cranford,” said Commissioner Bette Jane Kowalski. “As a Cranford resident, I am happy we have these new facilities and I invite all our families with children to come out and enjoy them.”
The new playground now has approximately six slides, ADA ramps and decks featuring spiral stairs, chamber archways, suspension bridges, swings, plastic bongo drums, climbing stations and ropes. The surface is soft and rubber bonded.
The ribbon cutting and subsequent use of the playground facilities will run in compliance with state COVID-19 orders, regarding social distancing and other protocols.
