launches Crowdrise Campaign for 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 walkers, runners and bicyclists to enjoy the natural beauty of the park.
The Allegheny County Parks Foundation has partnered with Allegheny County 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 with a $300,000 foundation grant and other potential funding sources. 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 of users who
Love the Loop.
Your gift will be matched dollar for dollar by Allegheny County!
