Before Anderson Park existed, three houses and a fire station sat on the 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. Free. Meet at the boulder at the park’s northeast entrance, 274 Bellevue Avenue, east of North Mountain Avenue, Upper Montclair. At 10 a.m. Handicap accessible. Sponsored by Friends of Anderson Park. Information: (973) 477-7207 or Lisanne@friendsofandersonpark.com, FriendsOfAndersonPark.com. (Rain cancels: Check the Friends of Anderson Park Facebook page or call (973) 477-7207  for weather updates.)
