Action Alert: Speak Up For Pittsburgh's Oldest Park

March 10, 2017 by Pittsburgh Parks

Dedicated as public parkland in 1867, Allegheny Commons Park is Pittsburgh's oldest park. Steeped in history, Allegheny Commons serves as a gathering space to 17,000 Northside residents; a destination spot for countless visitors to the National Aviary and Children's Museum; and a driver of locally owned business.

Right now, you can help Pittsburgh's oldest park by speaking up for important state funding. Click here to find out how. 

The Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy has requested support for the historically significant Allegheny Commons Park through a competitive state grant. Your could help make the difference in bringing these important funds to Pittsburgh, since community support makes a big impact in this grant process. Our 2015 application for the Frick Environmental Center was successful in large part because of the 315 comments Pittsburghers like you submitted.

UPDATE: The public comment period has closed. Thank you to all who submitted comments through our online form - we collected an incredible 854 letters!
