A new access road to Central Park of Morris County in Morris Plains will be named “Gov. Chris Christie Way” at a ceremony on Monday, Nov. 20, 2017.
The Governor and First Lady Mary Pat Christie are scheduled to attend the 12:45 pm groundbreaking, along with Morris County Freeholders.
The access road will wind through grounds of the former Greystone Park State Psychiatric Hospital. Activists sought to preserve the stately Kirkbride Building, erected in 1876, but the Christie Administration had it demolished in 2015.
The site has been designated for passive recreation.
