A crowd gathers to mark the dedication of Tranquility Park in honor of longtime Manalapan resident Phyllis DeStefano. The park includes a gazebo, a walking path and a dog fountain.
Phyllis DeStefano kisses her son Louis DeStefano, who financed the park’s construction. Residents also buried a time capsule at the park, which is behind the town library. Photos by Jerry Lower/The Coastal Star
