Did you know —
~ Pittsburgh has 8.3 acres of park space for every 1000 residents.
~ The City’s first formal public park, Allegheny Commons, was dedicated in 1873–the same year as Central Park in New York City.
~ The largest vintage sportscar race in the USA takes place on the winding roads of Schenley Park each summer.
Parks are a very big part of the city and play a roll in resident’s recreation and social plans. Whether you attend the movies, play ball, or hang out with friends at one of the picnic area, the parks have a lot to offer.
OpenSpacePGH is the City’s Open Space, Parks, and Recreation Plan, one of the initial components of PLANPGH. OpenSpacePGH would like to hear from you about how to use our parks and open spaces to make Pittsburgh an even better place to live. There are community meetings scheduled. We are letting you know early so that you can get it on your calendar. Below are listed the two closest locations for the community meetings. For a full list of locations and times, you can download the flyer. Check into the PlanPGH site for more details about OpenSpacePGH and the many other components of the plan.
