HANOVER TOWNSHIP — Whippany Park Senior prom was originally canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but Senior mom Alissa Campbell wasn’t going to let that happen. She contacted other parents and arranged an evening the graduates will never forget. There were 161 graduates in the Whippany Park Class of 2020. For a complete list of graduates click here.
“Legacy Castle did an amazing job with the entire event and would highly recommend them. The food and service were impeccable. The staff wore masks and temperatures were taken before the students went inside. I felt like they took all the proper precautions but gave the graduates a prom they will remember,” said Alissa Campbell.
The Legacy Castle is of a neo-classical French beaux-arts style architecture, a blend of different architectural elements abounds. There are towers, circular balconies with French wrought-iron railings, an outdoor terrace above a porte-cochere, and porticos supported by classical-style columns.
As you drive through the exquisite French-style wrought-iron gates, you will see the castle across the lake. Be sure to say Hello to the pair of resident white swans in the water. Moving along, you’ll drive under a towering arched entrance and come across a beautiful and artfully landscaped center courtyard with ramps on both sides leading to the castle, and a tall fountain with intricately carved marble figures as its centerpiece.
Each ramp holds vintage style lampposts intermittently embellished with urns filled with flowering plants, where you can hear the soothing sound of the water cascading from the top to the bottom of the 21-foot fountain.
