When the residents of Little Silver conclude their planned Memorial Day parade next Monday, they’ll wind it up at a parcel of land on Prospect Avenue that’s a far cry from the bank that was contemplated for the site more than a dozen years ago.
After more than two years of planning and construction, Little Silver Memorial Park has been transformed into a lush stretch of green, filled with mini Japanese maples and gravel foot paths.
Residents were pretty adamant about not wanting another commercial, asphalt space, said Linda Goff, chairperson for the borough Shade Tree Commission of Little Silver. So thats where we came in. We really wanted to make it a natural place where people would feel comfortable coming in to walk or sit and relax.
