Visitor Tips and News About Nay Aug Gorge Tree House
Visited the tree house 9/17/12 and found the gate to its ramp locked. Locals told us that it's only open in the summer. The park is still a great place to visit, and the bridge gives a great view of the gorge. If you don't want to walk too much, if you try some of the park roads, you can park pretty close to these sites. Also look for stacked up metal turtles at abandoned zoo, large Scranton electric sign, old Lincoln monument, old coal mine, and old deco museum building with four curious concrete slabs on lawn, as well as an old Navy artillery shell. Lots to see in a pretty setting. Drive in thru Scranton is easy, too.[Hal Clarke, 09/19/2012]
At the park there is also a shut down zoo. Buildings and cages near the buildings can still be seen along the path near the treehouse. There is even a colorful giraffe statue with one leg missing and several giant tortoise statues on the sides of the building. This was a nice bonus.[Erika And Eddie, 07/04/2012]
Excellent spot to visit even if you have someone in a wheelchair, as the tree house was built especially to allow wheelchair access. Everyone can enjoy the tree house and views it affords.
There is a great play area within Nay Aug Park for the little ones to enjoy themselves, and nature walks within the park. We try to visit a few times a year. You can sometimes catch a free concert if you time your visit right.[MikeinPA, 08/23/2010]
I loved this stop! The tree-house offers a great view. There is also a bridge with a scenic view of the Nay Aug Gorge. Great trails. Lots of dog walkers.[Sue, 06/29/2010]
