Saturday afternoon Weehawken township celebrated the Grand Re-Opening of Pizzuta Park, a longtime mainstay in town.
In a continuing effort to improve the community, they took great pleasure in announcing that the park renovations are complete and kids may now enjoy it for the rest of the summer and beyond.
Pizzuta Park dates back to the early 50s.
After Hurricane Sandy, the park was devastated with water.
They’ve fixed the flooring, brought in new swings and new apparatus.
The park is named after Charles Pizzuta.
Over the years, the park has gone through several renovations and this latest one began with the architects and Weehawken City Council.
Frank Pizzuta’s adult children are in their 50s now and he remembers them playing in the sandbox and old time swing set.
“When I was younger (I remember) actually having slides, in this corner,” Charlene Pizzuta says.
“Circular, spiral, right,” adds Frank Pizzuta.
According to Frank and Charlene, it looks like the kids could have a good time playing in the park and they could spend hours.
