Literally: The Stony Brook Pedestrian Bridge Wins Excellence Award
这 New Jersey Recreation and Park Association (NJRPA) awarded the Mercer County Park Commission its Excellence in Design award for the Stony Brook Pedestrian Bridge in Mercer Meadows. The award — based on the quality of public use, recreation, and park facilities with unique aesthetics, design, usability, and versatility — was presented at the Summit Family Aquatic Center in Summit, New Jersey on Wednesday, May 26th.
The bridge’s construction was part of a significant LHT reroute through the 珀丽 section of Mercer Meadows. The reroute shifted a popular portion of trail off a busy roadway and into previously inaccessible parts of the park. “The addition of the bridge has enhanced the features of Mercer Meadows, extending a network of trails and creating new routes” said County Executive Brian M. Hughes. “This has been a great benefit to the community and new visitors to the park throughout the pandemic.”
We celebrated the grand opening of the Stony Brook Pedestrian Bridge with a virtual ceremony and video last July — that makes this impressive bridge nearly one-year old!
