PITTSBURGH, PA (September 24, 2020) The City of Pittsburgh Office of Management and Budget today was awarded a $40,000 grant for a master site development plan for Fowler Park in Perry South.
The grant is from the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR)'s Community Conservation Partnership Program (C2P2), which announced its 2020 grants today.
"This is great news for Perry South, and I want to thank Senator Wayne Fontana, Representative Jake Wheatley and Councilman Daniel Lavelle for their support," Mayor William Peduto said.
Fowler Park is located in Perry South, and is accessed from North Charles Street via two entries along the west and north boundaries. The City’s open space plan, OpenSpacePGH, recommends investment and expansion, which is why the City is seeking to complete a master plan. The park has a swimming pool, sports courts, children’s play area, and two ball fields.
Tonight, the City-County Building is illuminated to recognize Poison Prevention Week and the 50th Anniversary of "Mr. Yuk" in partnership with Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC.
For questions about the lighting at the City-County Building, please reach out to the Office of the Mayor.
