See the survey our park visitors are taking!

June 28, 2016

The Allegheny County Parks Foundation has launched a user survey in all nine parks this summer to learn about our visitors' park experiences. This will help us and the Allegheny County Parks determine where to direct resources, services and programming. The interviewers will be in the parks through the summer. Here is our survey:
