|Washington Park in Warren, Pennsylvania
Civic-minded residents donated this 65-acre park to the city in 1922 to
honor the birth of the man most responsible for opening up the
American west. Warren was the country's western frontier.
It had been known as "the Ohio country" for several decades already,
named after the river which flowed through it. That's what the
Allegheny River was called by the French and the Seneca Nation.
"Ohio" means "beautiful river" and the Senecas still use this name. The
term "Allegheny" also means "beautfiul river" and comes from
the language of the Delaware Indians.
To get to this spectacular park, take Liberty
St. from downtown Warren and just keep
driving (or hiking) up the hill. You'll see the
sign for it on your left. Plenty of parking, picnic
tables, cook-out grills, and a beautiful view.
