Projects: Parks & Open Spaces
WEST NEW YORK, NJ
The town of West New York received funding in 2003 to build a much needed new public park and playground. The Park was named after Monsignor John Weigand, a popular pastor who had a reputation for getting things done in West New York, including building 3 catholic schools in the town.
The scope of work was substantial on this project, as Let It Grow built the entire park. We cleared and excavated the entire site, built concrete footings foundations, subgrade, installed decorative and concrete pavers, walkways, and amenities. We put up ornamental decorative fencing, assembled and erected a large gazebo with archways and expansive children’s playground set. Site furnishings including benches and a water fountain were added. Electrical work was done, and light fixtures, bollards, and features were implemented.
The highlight of the park is a magnificent unique waterfall feature when you first enter the park, which we installed, including installing basins, proper drainage, and plumbing system.
A brand new irrigation system went in, and we seeded, installed sod and various plant materials, including shrubs, grasses, trees and flowers.
