Bergen County Provides Funding for New Accessible Playground in Lodi


(Lodi) – Yesterday, Bergen County Executive Jim Tedesco and Bergen County Freeholder Steve Tanelli presented a ceremonial check to Lodi Mayor Emil Carafa, Jr. to support the installation of an accessible, inclusive playground in Lodi’s Memorial Park. Bergen County will provide $75,000 in open space funding for the project, half of the total expected project costs. When completed, the playground will provide a wonderful place to play for all children, especially those with disabilities and special needs. Included below are photos of the check presentation.
