Sandy Hook memorial playground opens in central NJ



SEA BRIGHT, N.J. (AP) — Organizers in New Jersey have opened the first of several memorial playgrounds that are being built across the region in honor the 26 victims of the Newtown, Conn. Schoolhouse massacre.

The playground that opened Saturday in Sea Bright honors special education teacher Anne Marie Murphy.

The playgrounds — one for each child and teacher killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School — are being built in New Jersey, New York and Connecticut communities hit hard by Superstorm Sandy.

The project, named “The Sandy Ground Project: Where Angels Play,” is being spearheaded by New Jersey’s Firefighter’s Mutual Benevolent Association. It connects the two tragedies that share the name “Sandy.”

Sea Bright was chosen for the first playground because of the level of devastation brought by Sandy.
