Duck Race a Success!

Hanson Park Conservancy’s Annual Rubber Ducky Race was held on Sunday, October 9, at Sperry Park in Cranford, NJ. It was a beautiful sunny fall day and everyone in attendance had a wonderful time. We raised money that benefits programs and maintenance of Hanson Park, but the event is what makes Cranford unique and wonderful. 

Hanson Park Conservancy would like to thank our sponsors and those who donated gifts.
