Also on hand during the ceremony were Crabapple Crossing students Anthony Maisano, Ilana Mermelstein, center, and Andie Robinson with Principal George Freiberger, Fulton School Superintendent Robert Avossa and Northwestern Middle School Principal Jasmine Kullar.
Crabapple Crossing Principal George Freiberger said he has been working on establishing the park since he came to the school eight years ago.
The park was a previously unused parcel between the two schools, but school and city leaders recognized the potential for both entities.
"My students will be glad to be off the asphalt [during recess]…and so will my clinic staff," joked Freiberger
during the dedication ceremony of the park.
