Jaycees Park - the paved path

There’s a park/path that curls around the New Providence High School football field (which was being used for soccer practice when I visited) called “Jaycees Park.” It was created through various organizations, according to a sign near where this photo was taken:

This exer-trail has been made available to the citizens of New Providence through the generous donations from the New Providence Murray Hill Lions Club, Martindale Hubbel, Manufacturers Hanover, Electrical Industries, and Summit & Elizabeth Trust Company.

This community project was constructed to foster the health and physical well being of all those who may choose to utilize it

(The sign is a bit difficult to read, so I may have added a few extra commas where they don’t belong)

Incidentally: I discovered it through the New Providence Patch, which is a fantastic source of local information (particularly about parks that aren’t county-owned and thus not featured on the county website). I happen to be lucky, ‘cos a lot of my local towns do actually have their own Patch. I do wish there was a way to cross-check a lot of ’em at once, though.

One Comment to “Jaycees”

  1. Nice looking scene. I like the curve in the path and the inviting bench. I wonder why it is turned so its back is facing the path and not the other way around?
