Parks do not exist without people. We restore parks for your joy and well-being. Pittsburghers need spaces where parents can play catch with their children, couples reconnect, families picnic. Parks, in return, do more than we realize. They clean the air, filter stormwater, lower stress…provide a natural sanctuary in forests of steel and glass surrounded by rivers of asphalt. Like anything alive, if neglected a park will suffer. And ultimately perish.

We believe in the power of parks.
