About this Project

The Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy, in partnership with the City of Pittsburgh, community organizations, and other key stakeholders are developing an improvement plan for Baxter Park. The plan will aim to achieve the following goals:

  • Enhance Baxter Park to meet community needs
  • Help advance goals identified in previous community planning efforts
  • Activate Baxter Park
  • Develop a plan based on community feedback and consensus

The final improvement plan will be realistic, achievable, and provide a basis for fundraising to further develop and construct the project. However, community participation is critical, and we need your feedback to develop the best plan possible for Baxter Park.
