The weather forecast calls for a 100 percent chance of rain at 10 a.m., so sadly we must cancel this year’s tour.
Join Friends of Anderson Park on Oct. 14 for our free “Anderson Park Historic Walking Tour”: Before Anderson Park existed, three houses and a fire station sat on the park property. Find out where they went and other surprising stories about how this Olmsted-designed Essex County park came to be created over a century ago, how it shaped Upper Montclair, and how it led to the formation of other Montclair parks. Also hear about efforts to rejuvenate the landscape of this park, on the National Register of Historic Places. Handicap accessible. Meet at the boulder at the park’s northeast entrance at 10 a.m. Rain cancels. Call or check Friends of Anderson Park Facebook page for weather updates.
