Councilman Nick Joanow amd the Third Riverbank Committee were the driving force that kept this project going. Many residents worked very hard to create the Bloomfield Open Space Trust Fund Committee and many committee members have worked for years on this project. Lois Ross, Mary Shaughnessy, and Susan Hebert come to mind immediatelyThe section above doesn't look like much now, but soon, the weeds will be pulled, the cyclone fences will come down, and environmentaly friendly landscaping will open the 5.7 acre space to residents for Passive Recreation. The surviving trees will be left in their wild state.
The township has hired Tim Delorm of Terra Noble Design in Glen Ridge to design the park and oversee the remediation to bring this land back to a natural state.
