HAWTHORNE, NJ - Goffle Brook Park was the scene of some happy sights Friday when the playground, just opened Thursday, was being made use of by residents since the closures triggered by the coronavirus pandemic.

Doris Guevara with her daughters Isabella and Penelope were happy to be out using the playground after being inside for the past few months. 

Further, a wedding took place in the verdant grass.  Michael Yelle served as officiant to Andrey and Daria who tied the knot in an outdoor ceremony.
