Trying to Make More Use of River Common in Wilkes-Barre
WILKES-BARRE, Pa -- It cost more than $20 million to build and it officially opened in June of 2009. The River Common is a public park along the Susquehanna River in Wilkes-Barre. It is a place local leaders hoped would see a lot of use. "This is a 20 million dollar park, the river common right here in Wilkes-Barre, other municipalities would love to have this here, we do some great things here, but we don't utilize it enough," said Luzerne County Manager David Pedri.
