Inscription.  

Nay Aug Park is a regional treasure and the largest park in the City of Scranton. Its legacy as a destination for outdoor recreation runs parallel to the City's proud history. The Pavilion at Nay Aug Park was built in 1897 - only a decade after Scranton revolutionized transportation by establishing the nation's first successful, continuously operating electric trolley system.

As part of the 35th Anniversary Class of the Leadership Lackawanna Core Program, the park's oldest pavilion was revitalized and rehabilitated to honor its history and strengthen the community's connection to Nay Aug Park.

This pavilion has played host to countless community gatherings, weddings and family parties over its 120-year history. The significant structural and aesthetic upgrades to the pavilion completed by Leadership Lackawanna and their regional business partners in the Spring of 2018 will ensure that the pavilion is enjoyed by area families for generations to come.
 
Erected 2018 by Leadership Lackawanna, the City of Scranton, and Concerned Organizations.
