Parks & Open Spaces

blue-slideThe Parks and Open Space Committee promotes the preservation and continued vitality of our public spaces. The committee has been instrumental in developing a plan embraced by the City to develop a linear park from Frick Park to the Monongahela River. The public trail would link Frick and Schenley Parks through the area called Nine Mile Run.

We are working with the Steel Industry Heritage Corporation and Friends of the Riverfront in developing a trail along the Monongahela called the Steel Industry Heritage Trail as a connector.

The Parks and Open Space Committee needs assistance in accomplishing our objectives:

  • Greater visibility
  • Promote the values of connecting our communities via its green spaces
  • Highlight the values of open space along Pittsburgh’s new frontier — its riverbanks
  • Develop political/business/community organization allies for values of open spaces
  • Create a public campaign for community benefits
  • Create maps to show linkages
  • Promote public dedications of our open spaces

The Stormwater Task Force is a project of the Parks and Open Space Committee.
