Frick Environmental Center

About the Building Programs Project Update

Frick Environmental Center

The Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy, in partnership with the City of Pittsburgh, has begun the first phase of construction for the new Environmental Center at Frick Park. The Parks Conservancy will continue to offer educational programming during construction.

The Frick Environmental Center will be a cutting-edge, environmentally sensitive building that will act as a living laboratory, providing children from all parts of the city with access to hands-on, experiential environmental education. The new Center will complement and restore the ecological and historical landscape of the park while enhancing visitor experience and understanding. Designed to meet the Living Building Challenge and LEED Platinum standards for energy efficiency, the new Environmental Center will support its own needs for water and energy.
