Dangerous Lightning Strike Closes Parts of Rumson Park

A large tree located within a Rumson park was struck by lightning during yesterday’s thunderstorm, resulting in the closure of certain sections of the park.

“Due to an unsafe condition caused by a large tree struck by lightning, portions of Rogers Park will be closed until further notice,” according to the Rumson director of Parks and Recreation.

The tennis and basketball courts at Rogers Park remain open while the playground and baseball field are closed.

Rogers Park is at the intersections of Church Street, Lafayette Street and Allen Street.
