PA State and Abington area public officials envisioned something apart from a typical municipal facility when they collaborated in 1972 to set aside land and provide base funding for a multi-municipal recreation area. They challenged a growing and progressive population to experiment with a management model that was not vested in any one town – but rather one triggering leadership from local residents and long-term support from the townships and boroughs of the Abingtons. Four decades later the concept has taken shape in the form of a vibrant recreation area that blends revenue sources from 5 Abington municipalities, Lackawanna County, the Commonwealth of PA, foundation grants and donations, and funds from diverse park users.
