Why not just kick every former PC worker in the nads... This park is doing the same thing every time we drive past it.

I agree, why not devote it to the glass plant that STAYED in Port! I understand people have worked hard on this but...... It was a good idea at the time but times change. How much money has the McKean County Redevelopment Authority put into this boondoggle? Didn't they but that property? Maybe they could build a furniture monument also? Devoted to Ethan Allen!! NOT........You don't praise those who take jobs from your community.

All 3 of the comments above are dead on. i have not heard 1 person in the community say this "park" is a good thing. Only hear questions about why honor a company that abandoned us.

Did that company "abandon" you or did the greedy unions and its members 'drive the company out'?

I think you are all missing the obvious, The government and everyone else knows that this 'monument' is not necessary and a waste of money. Look beyond the 'lie'. look at the so-called blueprint. It's not a layout for a civilian facility, it's obviously a government facility of some kind. Most likely a bunker for govt. activities. A warehouse for military supplies, a missile site, military hospital, fall-out shelter for high-ranking govt. officials, etc. Just look at the lay-out, no competent civilian architect or engineer would ever plan something like this for a visitor center. It's obviously been laid out & planned by a Corps of Engineer person with unlimited funding. I wonder what is really under this facility? It's possible there could be a rail-gun or a tunnel leading directly to Washington. Nuff Sed

Why not devote the time and money to the park across from it. Why the heck do you need two parks? One across from another

The P.C. went under due to terrible management. The housing authority in McKean County bought the movie show building that was where this so called park is located. Port had business men from Port put a bid in to buy the show building. to completely redo the building and have a movie house where it always was. But some sneaky means were used to find out how much the Business men had bid on the place and used the information to out bid them. The housing authority had a had a hand in this happening.... I should have said a woman working for the authority was in on it. So to make the housing authority look on the up and up some people got together and started planning this park with the help of said person that is with the housing authority. At least one of the planners .own a building on Main Street . In hopes the park would draw tourists to Port for their benefit too. So the story goes. Put in right at the time the employees of PC got the boot. Port was known for glass long before the PC came here. Now with the park the housing Authority is exempt from paying taxes to Port. But had the business men not been cheated out of the building THEY would have brought tax money into the borough. Whats wrong with this picture?

There is nothing beautiful about it Who is paying for those flickering lights? Its like a kick in the face for all the people that worked and lost their jobs at the plant maybe if that money was used to lower their taxes and give them a reason to stay it would still be in town. It is not attractive at all It looks like a mixed up mess. who wants to sit and look at a empty unattractive Sheets store and people on the park benches on the square????? A real waste of money

I know the person's heart was in the right place. The attempt was to save PC and keep it open. A valiant effort. I also feel for all the people that lost their jobs in Port Allegany after putting their hearts and souls into that plant. Life throws us all some curve balls. You have to find the positive things in life. Maybe, in a small way, the park could be a tribute to all the hours and sweat Port Allegany citizens put into their jobs through the years. I know I miss the place and the people...but life is so short.
