Area families and children joined Lackawanna County officials and Parks & Recreation staff to mark the opening of the newly constructed beach at the lake at Covington Park on June 25. Sand was added to shoreline, grills and picnic tables installed, safety buoys were put in place, and lifeguards were hired to monitor the daily free swimming activities.
Here is a great way to beat the heat and have fun for FREE.
The lakes and pool at Lackawanna County’s parks officially opened on Friday, June 24. All of the locations are staffed with lifeguards. The swimming areas are open Monday through Sunday from 11 AM – 7 PM.
The locations are as follows:
- McDade Pool, Scranton

The pool and lakes will remain open through mid-August.
