Look what we found!!!!  The Department of Public Works uncovered a huge granite (we think) boulder while working on the Green Street sewer replacement project.  We’re guessing that the boulder weighs around 10 tons and was deposited underground during the Paleozoic Era some 300 million years ago.  The granite boulder now has a new home in Bernie Anderson Park (Woodbridge Park) along South Park Drive.   Stop by and take a look!!!  You can’t miss it!!!
