Thornhurst Township has purchased land on River Road near the Luzerne County line with the intent to offer the only public access to the Upper Lehigh River. To date, the Park Committee has reviewed a physical assessment of the site and a preliminary identification of the wet lands. Based on a survey of residents for possible recreational interests, progress continues on the Master Plan. Public meeting notices on this topic are published in The Villager. Meetings are held in the Township Building when there is progress to report or decisions to be made.
