Veterans Park-New Picnic Area

If you have explored the yellow trail at Veterans Park, you would have noticed a break in the trees overlooking Succasunna Valley… and you may have thought that it was a perfect spot for a picnic table to rest and enjoy the view.  Thanks to Chris Cudia, it is a reality!  Working on his Eagle Scout project, Chris built an amazingly well-constructed table for hikers to enjoy… Many thanks, Chris!  :)
