RED BANK - A plan to build a splash park on the west side of Red Bank is drawing opposition.

However, more than 300 residents have signed a petition in favor of the project. "I think it would be a good idea," says Tim Johnson.
Proponents say the nature area is currently overgrown with weeds and could be cleaned up and used more beneficially.
