Restoring Your Park System to Excellence

Pittsburghers need parks. They're where families create lasting memories together, where people of all ages connect to nature, and where all of us can simply enjoy a breath of fresh air. Parks, in return, do more than we realize. They clean the air, filter stormwater, lower stress, and provide a natural sanctuary. 

We believe in the power of parks. We are all in. Are you?

Your parks depend on friends and neighbors like you. There are many ways to make a difference in the parks — plant a tree, volunteer, enroll in summer camp, buy a season pass to the Schenley Plaza carousel, donate to an upcoming capital project, and many others.
