PARSIPPANY, NJ - It's been nearly seven (7) years since Hurricane/Superstorm Sandy destroyed Parsippany's Grafton Park. Today, the destruction lasts no more as the park was celebrated with a Ribbon cutting honoring it's re-opening.
When Sandy made contact in 2012, many trees came down and the park could not be used for safety reasons. There were downed trees and the paths were deemed unsafe. More trees needed to be taken down and cleared away.
Today, the picturesque trail in the Sedgefield area of Parsippany is once again open. There is seating at several locations along the trail. This renovation was approved under the administration of Mayor James Barberio and completed under the administration of Mayor Michael Soriano.
It is a peaceful spot for residents looking for a morning or evening walk.
