VIDEO: Grover Cleveland Park Before and After Irene

Photos and video show brook in Essex County park go from calm to raging.

A Caldwell resident took a walk with his dog in Essex County's Grover Cleveland Park early Sunday afternoon after the heavy rains from Hurricane Irene finally came to a halt. With video camera in hand, he captured footage of the brook and pond. What is normally an ankle-deep brook raged with force and speed through the Caldwell/Essex Fells park. 

Photographs of Grover Cleveland Park from before Irene are included for comparison.

Wow, I don't think I've ever seen the park's river this high. Awesome video!

Great job by the county and the Conservancy by having the brook repairs done before the hurricane.
