Parks Listening Tour

Wherever you live in the city of Pittsburgh, the City of Pittsburgh and the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy want to hear your thoughts about your parks! From late 2018 through early 2019, the City of Pittsburgh and the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy are embarking on the Parks Listening Tour. At community meetings and events throughout the city, they will be gathering feedback on what neighbors like you love about their parks, and what they would love to improve.

The long-term goal is to bring all parks in all City neighborhoods up to a high level of quality by developing a data-driven methodology to guide equitable investments in projects and programs across the City. In order to do that, they need public input.

Whether you use city parks regularly for PSL games and other recreational activities or you use the parks rarely, your voice matters in this conversation. This is your opportunity to advocate for the equitable changes you want to see in your parks throughout the city.

If you can’t make one of the events, you can still review the Parks Listening Tour presentation and submit your feedback via the online survey.

PUMP believes that everyone should have equitable access to health + wellness, including through the presence of accessible, safe recreational spaces and activities in every neighborhood.

We hope you will attend a community event near you to share your feedback and #BeHeard!
