Action Alert: Help Make Your Parks A Funding Priority

June 8, 2018 by Pittsburgh Parks

Your extraordinary parks are gaining the national recognition that they deserve. Just this year, the Trust for Public Land announced that out of 100 U.S. cities, Pittsburgh’s parks rank 23rd – up 16 spots from last year.

Right now, you can keep this momentum going! Share your park priorities for the 2019 Capital Budget.

This month, the City is giving residents the opportunity to submit ideas for Capital Projects. Capital Projects are funded by public monies to design, build, or restore City-owned assets that provide a long-term public benefit. Examples of Capital Projects could be:

  • Repaving a cracked basketball court in your neighborhood park
  • Making a playground entrance more wheelchair accessible
  • Adding trail signs and maps where needed
  • Installing more recycling bins near baseball fields
  • Incorporating green infrastructure into parks to address regional stormwater issues
