Parks Listening Tour Comes to Greenfield, March 26

Greenfield Neighbors, here’s our chance to speak up for our parks.

Many of us are within a 10-minute walk of Schenley, Magee, Bud Hammer or Four Mile Run Park so we use the parks a lot and we know what we like about them. However, we also notice that infrastructure is crumbling in many places. (Thankfully, Magee got a facelift last year.)

Our park system gets donations for bricks & mortar improvements through the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy (capital expenditures) but there’s too little money in the City’s operating budget for routine maintenance.

The City of Pittsburgh and the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy want to solve this problem and they need our help. They’ve teamed up for the Parks Listening Tour, a citywide initiative to hear what neighbors love about the parks and what they would love to improve.

Attend the Parks Listening Tour, Greenfield meeting
on March 26 at 6:30pm
at Magee Rec Center

Speak up for our parks. Your comments will shape their future.


Photos from Greenfield’s Holiday Parade, 7 Dec 2018

Greenfield was all decked out on Friday 7 Dec 2018 in anticipation of the annual Holiday Parade. 

Folks lined up chairs on Greenfield Avenue so the kids could catch free candy tossed their way.

The parade kicked off with two police motorcycles in front to make sure the Avenue was clear.

Everyone glowed red in the fire truck lights.

The Ribbon Cutting at Magee

A happy crowd turned out on Wednesday afternoon, 14 November 2018, for the ribbon cutting at the newly renovated Magee Rec Center and Magee Field.  

Councilman Corey O’Connor and Mayor Bill Peduto prepared the big scissors. 

They cut the ribbon with assistance from kids from Greenfield School.

We all joined the crowd waiting indoors.

Councilman O’Connor and Mayor Peduto gave brief speeches.

Jim Gregg thanked the City for the renovated facilities on behalf of Greenfield Baseball Association and especially for the new lights.  Now the kids will be able to play after sunset.

The Garbage Olympics Cleans Up

Twenty neighborhoods, including Greenfield, participated in the Garbage Olympics on Saturday the 22nd of September 2018.

The good news is that Greenfield didn’t have much trash.  Volunteers picked up 36 bags of trash and 15 tires but were far overshadowed by Beechview where they picked up 70 bags of trash, 5 TV’s, 1 refrigerator, and 1 bike.

And so it went in many other neighborhoods.  Greenfield didn’t win anything but we can brag that we are pretty clean.
