The City of Scranton’s largest park, Nay Aug Park, grants residents and visitors a touch of nature amid the city landscape. Walking trails, picnic areas, kid-friendly rides, and two (2) playgrounds are among the attractions. The Everhart Museum is also located within the park.

A rock-strewn gorge and waterfalls add to the allure and have been named a National Natural Landmark. A pedestrian footbridge opened in 2007 to access parkland across the Roaring Brook, untouched for many years. Nay Aug Park’s David Wenzel Treehouse is the first of its kind in Pennsylvania. It overlooks the gorge, rising an awesome 150 feet above.
