Patricia Rooney Memorial Fountain

Situated in Allegheny Commons, Pittsburgh’s oldest park, the original Northeast Fountain, now known as the Patricia Rooney Memorial Fountain, stood for decades as a focal point of the park experience and community pride before its decommissioning after World War II, when it became a planting bed. A $2.5 million restoration of the fountain was completed in spring 2019. The new fountain matches the original in size and scale and has once again become a community focal point.
