The project team is looking for feedback!

Building on what we learned during the Advance Planning Report for Westinghouse Park, the project team has prepared two preliminary concept plans that are meant to show two possibilities for park improvements. You can find the two concepts below the survey. They are also being used to jumpstart conversations about what the future of Westinghouse Park should look like and are by no means the final plan.

To better help inform decision, we have developed a short survey about how you use the park and what types of improvements you most want to see. The goal of the survey is to supplement in-person input that the project team is collecting through a series of stakeholder interviews and attending community events.

We appreciate you taking the time to complete the survey, attend community events/meetings, and spreading the word about this park plan! We want to make sure that the input we collect is representative of the surrounding neighborhoods and everyone has an opportunity to provide their thoughts. If you have any questions, please contact Marti.

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 Apart from a well-used play area, its paths, landscape features, and community building are outdated and need to be improved.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.
