Making Your Parks Shine - Mellon Park Celebration

 25th Anniversary Icons


The Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy is celebrating 25 years of improving, maintaining, and caring for Pittsburgh’s parks by creating a collection of immersive and inclusive lighting installations across the city. Known as “Making Your Parks Shine,” these six installations are a visual celebration of some of Pittsburgh’s most beloved park spaces. Each site will be illuminated the evenings of Friday, October 1 and Saturday, October 2.

As part of our celebration, please join us for a community block party the evening of Friday, October 1 at the Walled Garden in Mellon Park. The party will include live music from Lee Robinson & ISKA, local food from Stunt Pig Food Truck, and family-friendly activities, including creations from Mike the Balloon Guy and lawn games from 6:00 until 9:00 P.M. This event is free and open to the public thanks to generous support from PNC and UPMC Health Plan.
