Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy

Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy

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.

A nonprofit organization, the Parks Conservancy has worked closely with the City of Pittsburgh since 1998 under an official public interest partnership agreement to restore the city’s parks.

To date, the Parks Conservancy has raised nearly $131 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.

Our Mission

Improving quality of life for the people of Pittsburgh by restoring the park system to excellence in partnership with government and the community. Projects and programs are conducted with respect for the environment, historic design, and the needs of our diverse region.

Our Vision

Wide appreciation and enjoyment of a sustainable park system whose landscapes, facilities and programming set world standards of excellence.
