Carteret, NJ – Mayor Dan Reiman and Councilman Vince Bellino announced the opening of a second Municipal Spray Park this one located in Bishop Andrews Park (Chrome Park) near the intersection of Salem Avenue and Mercer Street.
The park was designed in a curvilinear pattern and has an area of approximately 1,200 square feet. The Spray Park will feature a textured concrete spray pad with an above ground structure that has multiple jets forming a variety of patterns. The jets are operated by flush mounted push buttons on the spray pad. Additional benches, landscaping and fencing is being added to the park around the perimeter of the park. The spray pad will collect used water into a water revetment, reservoir, where it will be used in watering the park’s landscaping. Any overflow will be sent to a rain garden revetment and then into the Borough storm water collection system. The Spray Park will be open from 10 AM till dusk daily until mid-September.
“We are very excited to provide the amenity to our area residents,” said Mayor Dan Reiman. “It is the 2nd Spray Park in Carteret and they have both been well received by the community.” This is another example of the Mayor and Council working together to improve Carteret and our continuing efforts to upgrade our parks system.
