LIVINGSTON, NJ — Promptly at noon on Wednesday, Essex County Executive Joseph N. DiVincenzo, Jr. will announce that the Regatta Children’s Playground in the Essex County South Mountain Recreation Complex will be expanded with new swings and a cargo net climbing area for children ages 5 to 12 years. In the one year that the playground has been opened, it has become a popular attraction, and creating a larger play area is needed to accommodate the number of families who visit daily.

The announement will take place at Essex County South Mountain Arena at the Clipper Pavilion, rain or shine, on Cherry Lane in West Orange. Local elected officials are invited to join the County Executive.
