The improvements included in the Oval project scope were initially identified in the Fairgrounds Area Master Plan, 2010. On January 30, 2013 at the Home Economics Building in South Park, over 50 people participated in the public meeting to provide input on design options for Oval Improvement Project. The preferred design scheme was developed into detailed construction documents and advertised for public bid in March 2014. Temporary use limitations in the Oval area occured over summer 2014 during construction. The entire area, including the fields, will be opened for use in spring 2015.
This project was funded with a grant from the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources via the Parks Foundation and matching support from Allegheny County.
