The Village of Wellington hosted a grand re-opening ceremony for the newly renovated Essex Park in the South Shore community on Tuesday, Jan. 28. The ceremony included comments by Wellington Village Council members outlining the importance of the improvement project. Essex Park closed in August for upgrades that include a new observation deck, an additional sidewalk path, a water fountain, a picnic table, an updated rubber top on the playground, as well as lighting improvements.
