Pittsburgh proposes building community center, spray and dog parks

Tuesday, Feb. 12, 2013, 8:08 p.m.
 

Pittsburgh City Council on Tuesday introduced legislation to authorize spending nearly $2.6 million for parks and recreation, including $500,000 for a community center to be built on the North Side.

Council would commit $500,000 for new spray parks and dog parks. Community and senior centers across the city would receive $650,000 in upgrades. Funding would come from the $65 million capital budget, which includes a total of $2.8 million for the Department of Parks and Recreation, up $900,000 over 2012.

The community center is planned for Riverview Park in Brighton Heights. It would boast a $1.9 million soccer field with artificial turf scheduled to open this summer.
