PATERSON, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — The park at the Great Falls in Paterson has been shut down for a year and a half so it can receive a $2-million makeover.

Many people refer to the falls as “New Jersey’s Niagara”.

The park will be spruced up with new trees and benches, smoother pathways, and new walls that will allow for a better view, CBS 2 reported.

The park will reopen when the project is finished in early 2015.
