Bayonne special needs park officially opens

Halloween marked the official opening day of Bayonne’s first special needs park on 16th street. The park was finished in about 6 weeks, and is equipped with a playground that caters to disabled children.

“It’s absolutely beautiful with the kids,” said Bayonne mother Elisha DeMaria. DeMaria is actually who initially contacted Mayor Davis about the need for the park. All the children had a great time playing and enjoying the new facility on a beautiful autumn day.
