The Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy was founded in December 1996 by a group of citizens concerned with the deteriorating conditions of Pittsburgh's historic city parks — places they knew would matter long into the future.
To date, the Parks Conservancy has raised more than $130 million for parks and has completed 22 major improvement projects. Currently active in 22 of the city's 165 parks, the Parks Conservancy has expanded into community and neighborhood parks throughout Pittsburgh. Today, the Parks Conservancy continues to carry on the mission and vision thanks to your help.

Show Your Parks Pride

Donate to the Tree Fund
Donate to have staff and volunteers plant trees in our parks! Choose from Restoration, Commemorative, and Ceremony trees. These trees provide habitat and benefits such as carbon capture, stormwater management and shade.

The Perennial Fund
Donate $50, and we'll plant 25 perennial flower bulbs in one of Pittsburgh's parks. Perennials return for decades, and are a colorful welcome to spring.
Schenley Plaza PNC Carousel Pass

Frick Environmental Center Butterfly
Dedicate a butterfly at the Frick Environmental Center. Sealed in a round crystal-clear acrylic bubble, your butterfly image will create a permanent art display. Choose from one of the five butterfly images: Painted lady, Regal fritillary, Red spotted purple admiral, Common buckeye, Eastern tiger swallowtail.
Support Your Parks
Parks do not exist without people. We restore parks for your joy and well-being. Pittsburghers need spaces where fathers can play catch with their sons, couples reconnect, family’s 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.
