Before the ribbon was even cut on August 14, the new Nautical Playground was filled with parents and children dashing excitedly about in a pretty spectacular addition to Essex County Joe DiVicenzo's South Mountain Recreation Complex in West Orange.
"Twelve years ago I had a vision for what I wanted to do," DiVincenzo said. "People said, 'what are you doing? Are you crazy?' Now they're saying, what took you so long?"
The Nautical themed playground, located on Cherry Lane by the new Walkway, Clipper Picnic Pavilion, and Paddle Boats, boasts separate areas for children up to age five and older children up to age twelve. However, based on the enthusiastic comments of the parents and teens present, it's going to be pretty hard to keep the grownups off the ultra-cool installations.
