Making Your Parks Shine - McKinley Park

 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 Saturday, October 2 at the McKinley Park Recreation Center. The party will include live music from DJ Rok, local bites from Steel City Hot Dogs, plus family-friendly activities, including Simply Unique Face Painting & Yoga with Apple Tree Studios! This event is free and open to the public thanks to generous support from PNC and UPMC Health Plan.

Please register below and join us for a dazzling good time!
