About this Project

The Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy, in partnership with the City of Pittsburgh, community organizations, and other key stakeholders will revitalize a key community asset in McKinley Park. Once the site of a community baseball field built by neighborhood residents, the space evokes a strong sense of pride and nostalgia for residents and park users, and has the potential to serve as a vibrant community space. The 'community grove' will aim to achieve the following goals:

  • Provide a space for community programs, events, youth activation and advance goals identified by community organizations and park users.
  • Balance original master plan recommendations while responding to recent site changes and current community needs.
  • Address drainage issues, connections to other park spaces, and other challenges.
  • Protect and enhance ongoing ecological restoration efforts.
  • Create a space that is constructible, durable, and easily maintained.

As one of the largest and oldest City community parks, community participation is critical, and we need your feedback to develop the best outcome possible for the 'community grove'.
