Groundbreaking Group

On Wednesday, May 24, we celebrated the next phase of construction in historic Allegheny Commons Park. The improvements to Pittsburgh’s oldest public park will include pathway resurfacing, canopy tree plantings, bench installations, lighting to illuminate the North Promenade and an overall enhancement to the pedestrian experience. This investment directly reflects the Northside neighborhood’s unique needs and the upgrades residents wanted to see in their community park.   

Construction is slated to begin on June 19 and will continue throughout the summer. Stay tuned for project updates or click here to learn more!
