Residents Upset After Dirt Road in Jackson Used for “Safari Trip”

JACKSON-Two photos circulating on social media this week have sparked outrage as suspected out-of-town visitors drove down the long dirt road that backs up to the rear of the Six Flags Great Adventure Safari.

The road, known for years by locals gives drivers a glimpse at some of the park’s exotic creatures, including gazelle and giraffe in that section of the park.

After photos surfaced on Facebook, residents argued that the road should not be used as tourist destination. At least one vehicle in the caravan sported New York licensed plates.  A group of children exited the vehicles and were riding their bikes along the road, taking in the sights and sounds of the nearby Safari park.
