River Common

Located along the eastern bank of the Susquehanna River, the River Common is a scenic getaway from the day-to-day of academia. It features two grand gateways, beautiful gardens and ornamental trees, a grand common seating area and even a fishing pier. Jog, bike, walk or simply take a seat and take in one of the best views in Wilkes-Barre.
