Fellows Park is a small neighborhood pocket park alongside Main Avenue in West Scranton that features a playground and picnic area.

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, two playgrounds, two Olympic-sized swimming pools, and a waterslide complex number among the attractions. The Everhart Museum of Natural History, Science, and Art is also located within the park.

A rock-strewn gorge with a series of waterfalls is the centerpiece of the park. The Nay Aug Gorge is a National Natural Landmark. A pedestrian footbridge opened in 2007 to access parkland across the Roaring Brook, untouched for many years.

The David Wenzel Tree House in Nay Aug Park is the first of its kind in Pennsylvania. It opened on May 25, 2007 and overlooks the gorge 150 feet below. The tree house was constructed by Forever Young, Inc. with public and private donations, setting the stage for additional tree house construction in other cities across the United States.
