Public Meeting for Dickson City Riverwalk, October 4

Lackawanna Heritage Valley National and State Heritage Area (LHV) will host a public meeting and information session regarding the Dickson City section of the Lackawanna River Heritage Trail on Wednesday, October 4, at 6 p.m. at the Dickson City Borough Building, 901 Enterprise St., Dickson City.

As part of the Lackawanna River Heritage Trail system, the new 1.1 mile pathway will connect Dickson City to Olyphant. The new trail section will provide access for those who run, walk and bicycle in the area, and will provide access to the Lackawanna River for fishing. Some preliminary design concepts for the new section of trail will be presented at this meeting.

The Lackawanna River Heritage Trail runs 40 miles along the Lackawanna River, beginning at the confluence with the Susquehanna in Pittston, joining the Delaware and Hudson (D&H) trail in Simpson, and continuing to Union Dale at the Stillwater Dam. The trail extends north to the New York State border to complete the 70 mile trail system. The Heritage Trail is a wonderful community asset, used by thousands of people throughout the year for health and wellness, recreation, alternative transportation, access to the river and simple enjoyment of the area’s natural beauty.

The mission of the Lackawanna Heritage Valley National and State Heritage Area is to facilitate community action in the preservation, promotion and development of the region’s history, cultural heritage and natural resources.  For general information about the heritage area, visit www.lhva.org.
