By Rockland Daily Staff

The Village of Spring Valley celebrated the grand opening of Kennedy Park this evening.

The opening of the new park, located at 142 Old Nyack Turnpike, was celebrated with a ribbon-cutting event attended by village electeds and locals eager to make the most of the new recreational space.

"I am happy to join my colleagues in government to celebrate a great day here in the village. Parks are so important for our community, for the kids to come out and have a safe place to play. We know that it took a lot of work on behalf of Deputy Mayor Eisenbach and the village board" said Senator Bill Weber. 

Joel Friedman, Rockland County legislator shared his excitement, saying, "It is awesome to see this park being built so quickly. We in the county did what we could to get this grant going. The county is here to work for the citizens of Rockland, and we look forward to getting more parks and facilities done for the residents. 

Tony Earl, Rockland County legislator said, "The true credit goes to the village of Spring Valley. You guys were the ones who uplifted this and got this project finished, and I commend you for that. I hope everyone will have a good summer and enjoy this park to the fullest"

Legislator Aron Wieder shared his momentum, saying, "It is difficult to get elected and to do the job right… but moments like these makes it all worthwhile. This is what government should be all about".

"It is truly gratifying to see infrastructure being built here in Spring Valley, and we look forward to welcoming more parks in our own neighborhood soon", said Chaim Rose, Deputy Mayor of Chestnut Ridge.

"I am excited for the ribbon-cutting that we’re celebrating today. For quite some time, this was a park that was not utilized, and now we are able to open this park to the children of the area", said Deputy Mayor Eisenbach. 

As reported in August 2023 by Rockland Daily here, a $200,000 grant from the American Rescue Plan (ARPA) was used to purchase playground equipment for children ages 2 to 12.
