Parks Partnerships

Allegheny County Parks works with many individuals, organizations and companies that join together to care for and advance our parks and trails.

Over the years we have established partnerships with a variety of groups that provided no cost or low cost programming in our parks, develop opportunities for learning, enjoying and contributing to our parks and, additionally, operate and manage facilities for the general public.

Some examples of our partnerships include:

  • Allegheny Foothills Historical Society that manages the Log Cabin in Boyce Park
  • Student Conservation Association that provides students an opportunity to learn about trail construction
  • Amateur Astronomers Association of Pittsburgh that runs Wagmans Observatory in Deer Lakes Park
  • South Park Theater
  • Soccer clubs and baseball teams that invest in our fields
  • Boy Scout and Girl Scout Troops that work in our parks
