Commissioners rededicated the pond at Covington Park

The Lackawanna County Commissioners rededicated the pond at Covington Park once again to the DeSandis family, the original owner. The property had a cabin and pavilion, and Uncle Peter DeSandis hosted a variety of parties and events there. It was also used as a hunting and fishing destination. The County purchased the land in the late 1980s and transformed it into Covington Park.
