By John McDevitt
CAMDEN, N.J. (CBS) — As support to reopen and improve Cooper River Park West, in Camden, continues to gather, a community meeting will be held tonight to unveil environmental and recreational plan proposals.
Parkside Business & Community In Partnership Inc. is hosting the meeting. The organization’s executive director, Bridget Phifer, describes some of the proposals:
“An environmental center; there is an idea of access to the waterway for canoeing, for recreational type activities. There is an idea of creating what sort of looks like a boardwalk, which would give safe travel along that Admiral Wilson (Boulevard) corridor.”
Investment backers are being sought to reopen the park that has been closed for more than a decade.
Tonight’s meeting is at 7pm at the Early Childhood Development Center, 1602 Pine Street, in Camden.
