Maps & Courses
- Nay Aug Park was established in 1893. The name Nay Aug traces its origin to the Munsee Indians, a sub group of the larger Lenape tribe. In their language Nay Aug means ‘noisy water or roaring brook.’ The Munsee settled along the banks of the Roaring Brook and were a peaceful group mostly committed to fishing and farming.
- Merli-Sarnoski Park, dedicated in 1978, is named after Lackawanna County Congressional Medal of Honor recipients Gino Merli and Joseph Sarnoski.
