The History of North Park
Speaker: Allegheny County Park Ranger
On February 11, 1927, Allegheny County Commissioners passed a resolution establishing North and South County Parks. North Park, at 3,094 acres, is the largest park in the system, more than 1000 acres greater than its sister facility, South Park. Over the last century, North Park has been home to many unique features, some of which have faded into history. Join us to discover North Park’s rich history and see what has changed over time.
