About the Park

Nesbitt Park is a family-friendly, open space that’s great for a variety of activities. This well-kept park is home to many local events such as the annual Riverfest, a fun day of activities that include environmental education, as well as paddle trips along the Susquehanna River.

Due to its proximity to the river’s edge and its available boat launch, Nesbitt Park is often used by fishermen, but with its vast greens, the park is great for anything from an afternoon walk to recreational sports. Running right through the park is also the Luzerne County Levee Trail that is perfect for jogging, biking, or walking the dog.

Children can enjoy the playground while parents enjoy the beautiful shady foliage. With the park’s recently added disc golf course, all you need is a Frisbee or two to have a good time!


Located along the west shore of the Susquehanna River between the Market Street and Veterans Memorial bridges.
