Nay Aug Park is the largest park in Scranton, Pennsylvania, United States. An amusement park on the site closed in the 1990s, but a small amusement area still operates near the swimming pool complex.

The name of the park is of Native American origin and means "noisy brook."

  • Took lots of videos! Loved this park! Great waterfalls! Easy acess to all those who need it! Great place to swim, hike, or even have a picnic! Go on your own or with some friends and family! Will be back next time I'm in the area!
  • Pretty cool place right in Scranton! Would be awesome for early morning runs if you live in Scranton. There is some graffiti on benches, and with all the rain recently there was some mud in a few spots. The tree house is something worth seeing at least once. A lot of times they have car shows here which are pretty cool. Will be back with my kids at some point this summer!
  • The largest and best public park in scranton. Beautiful gorge and waterfalls with walking paths. Also a wonderful museum. A great place for all ages!!
  • The whole area as of now feels almost abandoned and forgotten. The playground as well as pool don't seem to be taken care of. It's nice if you just want a play to walk around.
  • I wandered around the park and contemplated my life. It's a nice park. I thought it would be so nice to share the park experience with, but there's no significant other in my life right now. I listened to my clogs hitting the grass and wondered if my straw hat was on straight. I don't know what I'm going to do. I just turned 50 and feel like life is over. The park made me realize I need to go get a job and find a purpose.
