Super Playground Design Concepts Shared with Community

On December 3rd, the City of Pittsburgh held the second in a series of community workshops to get community input on the Super Playground redesign and rebuild. The workshop was hosted over Zoom by the design firm working on the playground, Merritt Chase. This workshop follows a public input survey that was sent out at the end of Summer 2020, and a kick-off community meeting that took place at the September Highland Park Community Council meeting.

The two design concepts presented at the December 3rd meeting showcase different themes, aesthetics, and treatments to elements such as general layout, seating, and playground entrances. The final design will likely be a combination of elements of the two presented design concepts, with adjustments from the input provided at the December 3rd community meeting.

If you missed the meeting, you can see both concepts at the project’s Engage Pgh website, and can also provide your feedback on some of the core elements through a short questionnaire. You can also watch a recording of the workshop presentation here.

The next community meeting will be in February 2021 (exact date and time to be determined.) At this meeting, the detailed design will be shared with the community, with room for some final input and comments from community members. HPCC encourages everyone to check out the two design concepts presented so far, and come to the February meeting,
