Mine-Scarred Lands Initiative Tool Kit: Cranberry Creek Gateway Park
Tool Kit Links
The Cranberry Creek Gateway Park is a 366-acre former anthracite coal mine. The community is interested in revitalizing this site into a multi-reuse park with commercial, residential and recreational components. The key challenge for this project is integrating cleanup, compaction, infrastructure and other site development activities. The community held a convening of federal and state partners to outline potential funding sources and phases of redevelopment activities. To ensure the community was informed and engaged in the revitalization process, a community engagement plan was also developed.
