WALL TOWNSHIP — The township unveiled its new inclusionary playground at Wall Community Park, 2700 Allaire Road, on Thursday, Nov. 9 at 9 a.m. Wall residents gathered for a ribbon-cutting ceremony that introduced new equipment designed for children with disabilities.
The new playground contains new audio and visual play equipment, a new playground structure – with swingsets, a jungle gym and slides painted bright blue and green – and a rubberbond safety surface over the entire area to prevent injuries.
Children were given the opportunity to test the new playground after the ribbon was cut by the members of the township committee; Mayor Tim Farrell, Deputy Mayor Erin Mangan, Daniel Becht, Kevin Orender and Tim Clayton. Officials from the Monmouth County Board of Commissioners were also in attendance.
“We always understood that Wall doesn’t really have a town center, but this municipal complex…these soccer fields are sort of our meeting place in town,” said former Wall mayor and current Monmouth County Commissioner Nick DiRocco. “The playground needed some attention…working with the county and some of our professionals, we devised a plan to modernize this whole area and make it more effective and more efficient.”
