Doug Falcone, a member of Boy Scout Troop 236 in Long Valley, recently completed refurbishing the picnic tables and benches at Rock Spring Park off East Springtown Road, in Long Valley, as part of his Eagle Scout project.
The tables at Rock Spring Park were worn
out and in poor condition. Doug worked his way through
the bureaucratic process and spoke with the director of
Recreation, Elanora Murfitt, appeared before the Town Committee
and Planning Board, and obtained approval from all involved.
With donations solicited for the materials required, a
work crew assembled, the tables were removed from the park.
Sanding and two applications of stain made
the tables attractive to use and safe (no more splinters).
Upon completion of the renovation, the tables were inspected
by the Recreation department and placed back in the park.
Please take an opportunity to visit the area and see
the improvement Ryan and the local Boy Scouts have made
to the path surrounding the pond. Directions to the pond
can be obtained on the recreation pages. .
