A newly-refurbished Price Path was rededicated June 19, with members of the Price Family, North Arlington officials and the community in attendance.
Former North Arlington Mayor Leonard Kaiser, who dedicated the original path in John Price’s memory 24 years ago, read the proclamation and recalled that earlier time.
Mayor Joseph Bianchi spoke about Price’s sense of volunteerism and thanked everyone for getting the path refurbished.
Council President Dan Pronti, who spearheaded the rededication project, thanked the DPW for their hard work and Scott’s Landscaping for donating man-hours.
John Price’s children, Kathy Price-Sturniolo and Bob Price, recalled their father’s love of North Arlington and how much he enjoyed volunteering in the community. He was a longtime Little League volunteer and served on the Planning Board and other committees.
Price Path connects Riverview Avenue and Pershing Place and had become overgrown with tree limbs and branches. The stairs on the west side became a tripping hazard and the benches were worn and unstable.
Now it is a manicured, peaceful spot for a short stroll or quiet reflection.
