Where Angels Play Memorial Park


"After the Sandy Hook Shooting in Newtown, CT in 201q2, 26 built throughout New Jersey, Connecticut and New York were built to honor all of the young victims by the Where Angels Play Foundation. The group, founded by retired Elizabeth firefighter Bill Lavin, is now complete with its latest playground in Veterans Memorial Park, where it will honor first responders. With slides, ladders, climbing walls and other equipment in bright shades of red, yellow and blue, the playground also features toy replicas of police cars and fire trucks. A fire truck faces the New York City skyline, angled toward the Freedom Tower in homage to the work of local first responders, including Elizabeth firefighters, after the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attack." -
