SCRANTON -- One spot in Scranton is getting a little more beautiful this weekend.
The Lackawanna River Conservation Association held a cleanup and beautification project on Parker Street on Saturday.
Volunteers tackled an illegal tire dump site right next to the Parker House on the city's north side.
"We're cleaning it all up. We’re working with the city to establish a river access point here," Bernie McGurl, Lackawanna River Conservation Association
The project was a collaboration with the Pennsylvania Environmental Council, the City of Scranton, the DPW, Lackawanna County Recycling Center, Alliance Landfill, and Waste Management.
Once the site is cleaned up, a river access ramp will be added for fishing and river sports.
