“The recommendation for the Spray Park was made in the 2005 Capital Facilities Study, as was the Pellowski Playground, Mountain View Park in Hillsborough,  East County Park in Warren, Skillman Park in Montgomery Township, and other projects,” commented Geoff Soriano, Director of the Park Commission.
