Grace Lord Park and the adjacent Canalside Park in Boonton, New Jersey, attract families, hikers and nature enthusiasts throughout the year. This scenic, historical area includes wooded trails along the Rockaway River and green space for picnics, weddings, community events, and most recently a natural-themed playground.
This new playground replaces a 30-year-old wooden structure that was both outdated and unsafe. “When our residents speak up, our town leadership listens,” says Rosemarie Lynch, Boonton Parks and Recreation Director. She was instrumental in leading the project.
