WATCHUNG, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--On Tuesday June 4, at 2:00 p.m., a ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held for a new playground for the Bayberry Elementary School in Watchung. The ceremony, hosted by Mayor Keith Balla, Superintendent Stephanie Bilenker, and School Principal Jill Dobrowansky, will unveil a transformed playground. The construction features non-slip hardtop, new drainage systems and state-of-the-art playground equipment, including a Nancy Lieberman “Dream Court.”

The opening ceremony for the playground will be held at the Bayberry Elementary School, 113 Bayberry Lane, Watchung, New Jersey, and feature speakers from the Watchung Board of Education, joined by Bill Ard, Super Bowl Champion, Bayberry School graduate and long term Watchung resident; Nancy Lieberman, Basketball Hall of Famer and two-time Olympian; Tracy Bisignano and Frank Bisignano, Chairman and CEO of First Data, and Watchung resident.
