Who would have thought that a chat around a kitchen table could dramatically change Pittsburgh for the better?
When a few friends sat down in 1996 to talk about the sad state of their beloved parks, they couldn't have known then what their actions would inspire: a nonprofit called the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy.
Since then, we have been beyond honored to work in your world-class parks. In close partnership with the City of Pittsburgh, as well as countless volunteers, donors, and partners, your parks have changed tremendously. Below, see the amazing before-and-after photos of Parks Conservancy projects completed over the years.
The change that has happened in your parks would not have been possible without your support. With so much more to be done, we look forward to many more years working with you to make your parks even better.
With thanks and celebration,
Your friends at the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy
