At the Parks Foundation, we’re always working to improve, conserve and restore the nine parks in Allegheny County. We contribute big-picture and long-term thinking, as well as fundraising efforts through our partnership with Allegheny County. By using the Allegheny County Parks Comprehensive Master Plan and other studies as our guide, we raise public and private funds from foundations, corporations, state and federal grant programs and individuals to design and implement projects in our parks. We commission and conduct surveys, plans and ecological assessments of our individual parks and park system which guide the strategic development of improvements in all nine county parks. All projects are undertaken in partnership with Allegheny County, with the county matching most private and non-county public funds raised by the Parks Foundation.
