Princeton reopens playground renovated with Mercer at Play grant
PRINCETON -- Let the spray play begin!
Mercer County Executive Brian M. Hughes, Freeholder Andrew Koontz, Princeton Mayor Liz Lempert, Recreation Director Ben Stentz and other Princeton officials cut a ceremonial ribbon Aug. 8 to mark the opening of the renovated Mary B. Moss Playground on John Street in Princeton.
First- and second-graders from the Recreation Department day camp were on hand to try out the new play areas, including a “sprayground.” The park also features new playground equipment, a pavilion with picnic tables and new landscaping.
The project was funded in large part by Mercer at Play, a grant program that Mr. Hughes introduced in 2006 to encourage new municipal recreational amenities for all ages.
