The project team has blended the feedback that's been gathered from residents, stakeholder interviews, and from the Advanced Planning Report work done previously. All of that, along with site assessment and analysis of the park, has combined to create this draft proposal for Westinghouse Park.
Please explore the plan below and complete the short survey. We want to know if you feel that your park needs and priorities are reflected in this space. We value your input greatly.
Westinghouse Park Draft Plan

Westinghouse Park is the well-loved but unpolished gem in the heart of Pittsburgh’s Point Breeze North, Homewood and Point Breeze neighborhoods. Formerly the site of Solitude, the estate of George and Marguerite Westinghouse, the park’s 10.2 acres feature broad lawns, mature trees and hidden historic artifacts. Apart from a well-used play area, its paths, landscape features, and community building are outdated and need to be improved. This requires development of a master plan.
To establish a foundation for this planning process, a partnership between the Westinghouse Park 2nd Century Coalition and the Point Breeze North Development Corporation has secured grants from the URA’s Neighborhood Initiative program and a private funder.
The master plan will identify how the park can best achieve its potential to serve the needs of its users, strengthen the community, improve its environmental quality, and explore and celebrate its important historical legacy.
