    The 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-private partnership agreement to restore the city's four regional parks: Frick, Highland, Riverview, and Schenley.

    To date, the Parks Conservancy has raised over $100 million for parks and has completed 17 major improvement projects. Currently active in 22 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.

    Every dollar counts. We invest $4,000 per day in the parks. Did you know? It costs...

    $40 to remove half an acre of invasive vines
    $75 to plant one restoration tree
    $250 to plant 125 perennial bulbs
