Some local residents fighting proposal to redesignate Delaware Water Gap NRA as an NP
PENNSYLVANIA — Local residents are pushing back hard against a proposal to bring a National Park designation to one of Pennsylvania's greatest treasures.
The Delaware Water Gap, a mountainous region which straddles the border of Pennsylvania and New Jersey above the Stroudsbrug area and is riddled with hundreds of miles of trails, islands, waterfalls, caves, and more, is not actually a National Park. It's a National Recreation Area. And with that comes fewer protections than the coveted "NPS" designation.
