Over the next two years, the bridge leading to the southern tip of the lake on Landing Road is being replaced with a new one.

The Landing Gateway and Streetscaping Committee is charged with collaborating and contributing ideas of the new look for that part of Landing. A new bridge, new streetscaping, new green areas, new benches, a gazebo, and public docks will all come together to offer a new look to this scenic area and park.

Roxbury Nixon School students were visited by members of the Landing Gateway and Streetscaping Committee on Monday, March 26th. Those members included Mayor Crowley, Mr. Kane, the President of the Lake Hopatcong Historical Museum, and Mr. Potillo, Resident and Nixon School Parent Alumni. Together these individuals provided the second, third, and fourth graders with an overview of Lake Hopatcong’s history. They also shared with the students how they could become a part of that history.

At this time, Roxbury’s newest park does not have a name; however, the Nixon School second, third, and fourth graders have been asked to help with this very important task. The Roxbury Town Council has approved three names for this new park. The task before Nixon School students is to vote on these names and to submit the name with the most votes to the Town Council for acceptance. The vote will take place on April 6th and it is anticipated that the name will be recommended to the Town Council at its April 10th meeting.

Nixon families are encouraged to take their children over to this piece of land over the next week to help them make an informed decision on the name.

“It is one thing to see it in a picture, but a completely different experience to see it in person,” shared Nixon Principal Danielle Lynch.

To help students understand what the Landing Gateway and Streetscaping Committee are doing, they shared a Power Point during their presentation.

Lynch added in an email blog to her families, “Special thanks to the Lake Hopatcong Historical Museum for allowing me to share this presentation with you. I encourage all families of second thru fourth graders to view the PowerPoint together and have the children share with you what they learned in relation to the photographs.”
