SCRANTON, Pa. -- A quirky park which has been at the center of a disagreement for several years is now open in the Electric City.

The Renaissance Park at 500 in Scranton is elevated off of Lackawanna Avenue in a space that was once a rail line.

The park was completed years ago but due to contract disputes between the contractor and PennDOT, the opening was put on hold.

Folks can access the park by a stairwell or elevator located on Lackawanna Avenue.
