Lackawanna County has entered the Green Phase of PA's reopening plan. We recommend that you call ahead to your destination before traveling to ensure nothing has changed. Mask-wearing is required in Pennsylvania.
The South Abington Recreation Park is renowned for its summertime Slashpad, year-round trails, fields, and park. Many groups use the athletic fields for various events, such as softball, t-ball, little league practice, soccer. Basketball courts, adjusted seasonally for lights, are available.
A children's playground is a popular feature year-round, as is the Walking Trail which starts at the Basketball Court and ends at Layton Road. There are two covered bridges along this trail. The trail is used by many throughout the region and is decorated during the holiday season along with the remainder of the Park.
