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?

Educational Programs inspiring the next generation of environmentalists

The future of parks depends on today’s students. Working alongside partners in public and private schools, our full staff of educators engage students through thoughtful park curriculum. Parks Conservancy educational programs not only help students gain a better understanding of the natural world, they encourage young learners to take part in stewardship activities that actively make it better.

Restore Your parks

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. Parks have never mattered more to us than they do now. Please consider giving them your support.
