McKinley Park, a South Pittsburgh gem
McKinley Park is one of Pittsburgh's oldest, most beautiful parks. In July 2013, Councilwoman Rudiak, along with partners across City departments, Councilman Kraus, the Parks Conservancy, the Birmingham Foundation, State Rep. Wheatley, State Sen. Fontana, and Beltzhoover neighborhood organizations, celebrated a new and improved entryway. An eco-friendly porous parking lot surrounded by rain gardens, new lamp posts and benches, and improved pathways now grace this South Pittsburgh gem.
