PARKS AND RECREATION

AUSTIN T. BLAKESLEE NATURAL AREA
Click here for a brochure & map

Austin T. Blakeslee Natural Area is a Regional Park in Tobyhanna Township purchsed through the collaboration of Tunkhannock and Tobyhanna Townships. This project was funded in part by the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and the Monroe County Open Space Bond. It was the desire that this area be kept in its natural state, adding only a few paths and other minor improvements to allow the public to enjoy its scenic beauty and to allow fishermen access to the Tobyhanna Creek. It is open Dawn to Dusk daily.


Originally used for farming, it became a popular, active recreational park, named Harrison Park, until a flood destroyed it in 1955. Remnants include the foundation of a stone building that housed the roller rink, and an artesian well. Today, the Austin T. Blakeslee Natural Area is approximately 130 acres of permanently protected land. The Tobyhanna Falls have been a treasure for generations to the residents in the Blakeslee area.
