Emerald View Park Master Plan – Public Workshop #2
February 8 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Emerald View Park is a 250-acre regional park located in the City of Pittsburgh’s Mount Washington, Duquesne Heights, and Allentown neighborhoods. Emerald View Regional Park is the most recent addition to Pittsburgh’s regional park system. Pittsburgh’s regional parks, including Frick Park, Schenley Park, Highland Park, and Riverview Park, are vital cultural and ecological assets, each with unique identities that contribute to the City’s iconic urban landscape. Emerald View Park includes a variety of public open spaces, greenways, trails, Grandview Avenue, and multiple neighborhood parks (Olympia Park, Mt. Washington Park, Grandview Park, Eileen McCoy Park, and Ream Park). The Emerald View Park Regional Master Plan will guide the future of the park. The goal is to connect the park’s ecology, history, and culture in order to preserve the park’s signifcance as a collection of neighborhood amenities and elevate its role as a regional destination.
The Emerald View Park Master Plan will be developed through a master plan process that includes community engagement, ecological review, and design of functional spaces. Completed plans from the park master planning program include the Sheraden Park Master Plan and the South Side Park Master Plan.
In this public workshop, we will present concepts and options for improvements, and review in small groups by geographic area.
