The Pocono Mountains were famed as live entertainment, tourist, and honeymoon capital. Poconos Park plans to reinvigorate what made the Poconos such a great destination to visit and live.
Poconos Park, formerly the Mt. Laurel Performing Arts Center and the Tom Ridge Pavillion used to be, sits on 200 acres of land and is revitalizing and updating the property in a big way. According to a From The Roots press release, a real estate development and venue management company, From The Roots, is heading this change to bring Poconos Park into a beautiful and visually stunning mountainous region for visitors and locals.
“The Poconos were once one of the biggest vacation and entertainment destinations in the U.S.,” John M. Oakes, CEO/Founder of From the Roots, said in a press release. “We aim to make it a ‘go-to’ music festival and event destination.”
According to a From The Roots press release, Poconos Park will include the Amphitheater at Poconos Park™, an open-air venue with 3,000+ seats, and a lawn area with a 7,000 or more person capacity that will give an incredible viewing experience for all patrons. There is also the Lakehouse at Poconos Park™, which hosts a 10,000-square-foot banquet hall capable of seating 400 people and boasts a view of an awe-inspiring 90-acre lake, giving patrons a grandiose and bougie experience.
Poconos Park is within a reasonable driving range of numerous major cities, being only a 75-minute drive from Newark, New Jersey, and a sub-90-minute mountainous drive with breathtaking views from New York City and Philadelphia. Poconos Park has indoor and outdoor functionality, the scenery in every direction, full-service concession with liquor. Festivals, concerts, and theater productions will be year-round and one of the top destinations for locals and visitors in the Poconos.
