PITTSBURGH MARATHON RUNNERS LOVE THE LOOP! SUPPORT THE NORTH PARK LAKE TRAIL.
Designed by famed landscape architect Paul Riis, North Park is the largest and, along with South Park, the oldest of the Allegheny County Parks. At the heart of the park is a stunning lake with a five-mile loop trail to invite runners, walkers and bicyclists to enjoy the natural beauty of the park.
The Allegheny County Parks Foundation has partnered with the County Parks Department to restore and improve various sections of the North Park Lake Trail. We have launched a campaign to complete the remaining one and one-half miles along Pearce Mill Road. This project will transform the surrounding landscape and create a safer experience for all users.
The total cost of the project is $2.2 million, half of which will be matched by Allegheny County. We are on our way toward meeting our $1.1 million fundraising goal. We are inviting those who of you who love the North Park Lake Trail to be a part of completing this project.
Help us raise $50,000 from the community through various fundraising events including the Dicks Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon!
Be inspired by our marathon runners, watch our video, consider what this beautiful place means to you, and please join us by making a contribution today! Your gift will be matched dollar for dollar by Allegheny County. Together we can do this!
