Abstract
The federal Bureau of Mines conducted a demonstration project to reclaim 125 acres of abandoned strip-mined land in Lackawanna County Pennsylvania, for public recreational, historical, and educational use as a park. The Bureau was involved in the development of the general site plan, and engineered and supervised the basic land rehabilitation. The park's facilities include outdoor recreational activities, picnic grounds, children's play areas, primitive overnight camping, and winter sports. A major attraction is the anthracite museum constructed by the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission. The project may serve as a prototype for reclaiming existing and future surface-mined lands. Work done in cooperation with Lackawanna County, Pennsylvania.
