Join us at the North Promenade Rehabilitation Project Groundbreaking Ceremony
We’re thrilled to announce that the next phase of the North Promenade rehabilitation in historic Allegheny Commons Park will begin soon!
In honor of the latest park project, you’re invited to a special groundbreaking ceremony on Wednesday, May 24, beginning at 11:00 a.m near the corner of Federal Street and North Avenue.
The event will feature remarks from state, city, and local dignitaries, a ceremonial project kick-off, and light refreshments.
The reconstruction of the North Promenade will stretch from Federal Street toward the George Washington Monument, building on the progress from the first phase completed in 2021 and the award-winning restoration of the historic Patricia Rooney Memorial Fountain, a focal point of Allegheny Commons Park. New park lighting, pathways, and benches will be installed, as well as a pedestrian friendly crossing at Arch Street.
This project is made possible in part by a grant from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Commonwealth Financing Authority, funding from the City of Pittsburgh Parks Tax Trust Fund, and thanks to our generous supporters.
It’s an honor to have this opportunity to enhance a treasured part of one of Pittsburgh’s most remarkable communities. Please click here to learn more about this unique project and how you can support the Parks Conservancy’s ongoing work in Allegheny Commons.
