The Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy was founded in December 1996 by a group of citizens concerned with the deteriorating conditions of Pittsburgh's historic city parks — places they knew would matter long into the future. To date, the Parks Conservancy has raised over $126 million for parks and has completed 22 major improvement projects. Currently active in 22 of the city's 165 parks, the Parks Conservancy has expanded into community and neighborhood parks throughout Pittsburgh. Today, the Parks Conservancy continues to carry on the mission and vision thanks to your help.
