Hartwood Acres Sculpture Garden

Hartwood Acres has been home to some of the region's best postmodern public sculptures since the 1980s. Plans are underway to restore, conserve and re-situate the 12 artworks to create a Sculpture Garden that will have walkways and offer opportunities for cultural programming, events, arts education, exhibitions and leisurely contemplation.

Bench Endowment Program

Celebrate Life's Events with our Bench Endowment Program

Many people inquire about a meaningful way to improve the parks with a gift that will be of lasting benefit. Our Bench Endowment program provides an opportunity to make a gift to the parks in honor of a loved one, in memory of a special friend, or in expression of thanks.

The benches are comfortable, well-made, and designed to last.  Three models are currently available, two Classic Style Benches perfect for enjoying a lakeside sunset or woodland view, and the Indiana Limestone Bench that gives a place for people to rest in the formal areas of our parks.

The Classic Style Bench is cast iron with either steel slats or recycled plastic slats and has a bronze plaque attached on the back rest.  The classic bench is typically located near park facilities, playgrounds, along trails, or park gathering places.


The Indiana Limestone Bench is very sustainable and has a bronze plaque attached on the front face of the bench seat. The limestone bench is typically located adjacent to historic park features.

Please contact us if you would like to contribute to the Bench Endowment Program. Thank you.

Preserve Our Parks

If you believe that great parks make great communities, we ask for your support to enhance our regional treasures, the Allegheny County Parks. The nine County Parks totaling over 12,000 acres include North Park, South Park, Settler’s Cabin Park, Boyce Park, Hartwood Acres Park, Harrison Hills Park, Deer Lakes Park, Round Hill Park, and White Oak Park.

Established in the late 1920’s, the County Parks are a magnificent resource, important to both the quality of life and economic prosperity of the County, but they require attention. Facing the increasing needs of active citizens looking for opportunities to enhance healthy lifestyle choices, we need your help to improve the parks and preserve the legacy of excellence.

The Allegheny County Parks Comprehensive Master Plan estimates the total cost of capital improvements to be $80 million to address preservation of existing assets and development of new facilities in the nine County Parks.

We need your support. With your donation, we can deliver projects and programs to enhance our parks, making them even better for generations to come.
