In 2005, the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy and the Highland Park community returned this grand park entrance back into a neighborhood treasure.

Starting in 2003, the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy and the Highland Park community began the effort to return the Highland Park Entry Garden to its late 19th century grandeur. Over the decades, the garden’s original design had been lost, and its fountain turned into a planting bed. Restoration included tree and soil removal and replacement, reconstruction of the pool's stone coping, fountain replacement, renewal of plantings and flower beds, installation of new lighting and benches, and walkway restoration.
