Phase one of the Brentwood Park renovations will begin after the July 4th celebrations.

The construction work includes basketball courts, baseball fields and a dek hockey rink, council members said on Tuesday night.

The new picnic tables and umbrellas are now up on the civic center porch.

Officials are financing an estimated $8 million renovation of the park off of Brownsville Road.

In other business:

• Volunteers are needed for the Fourth of July celebration to stuff packets and fold T-shirts.

Participants can go to the library community room on Friday at 10 a.m. and noon to 8 p.m. or Saturday and Sunday from noon to 4 p.m.

Organizers also are looking for World War II veterans to ride in the parade, which is scheduled for 10 a.m. on July 4 on Brownsville Road.

Those interested can call Dave Buechel at 412-310-744.

• Central Blood Bank will host a blood drive on Friday in the Brentwood Library community room from noon to 6 p.m.

All donors will receive two Pirates tickets in the mail.

Appointments can be made at www.centralbloodbank.org.
