From a press release:
The Lackawanna County Commissioners – Jerry Notarianni, Debi Domenick, and Chris Chermak – have announced that the four county parks are now accepting reservations for gatherings at the respective pavilions and athletic fields.
To make a reservation, contact the Parks and Recreation Department at 570-963-6764. For more details about dates and fees, visit lackawannacounty.org.
During the upcoming season, McDade Park in Scranton, Merli-Sarnoski Park in Greenfield Township, Covington Park in Covington Township, and Aylesworth Park in Jermyn will be open to the general public on Monday through Sunday from 7 a.m. until dusk, when the parks close.
People will be able to walk, hike, jog, bike, and fish. The restrooms will be open, and sports activities will be permitted. All safety protocols must be followed, as the coronavirus pandemic is still ongoing.
All individuals or families that rent the space must follow Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf’s mitigation practices on social distancing and other virus safety protocols in regard to group gatherings.
McDade Park’s Lackawanna Coal Mine Tour will remain closed until further notice.
The commissioners urge everyone using the facilities to have fun and remember to be safety-conscious at all times.
