Yesterday’s 3rd Annual HPCC Pumpkin Patch was a huge success! People turned out in droves (at least before the Steelers game started!) and every pumpkin was adopted. Thank you to all of the generous visitors who were able to contribute: for the first time, this event paid for itself! We love putting on events like this, but they are only possible with community support. If you’d like to join or donate, please click the “Donate” link in the navigation above or click here.
P.S. Attached are a few pictures we thought you’d enjoy.
Be sure to wander down to the Bryant St Parklet this Sunday, October 16th from 11am-2pm for the 3rd annual HPCC Pumpkin Patch! It’s a great time to pick a pumpkin, enjoy the Halloween decorations, and take some fall family photos. Pumpkins are free, but if possible, we do request a donation to help us cover expenses for this event. Pumpkins are available while supplies last.

The HPCC Super Playground Committee is excited to announce that the new Super Playground will officially open on the afternoon of Saturday, August 27th at 1pm sharp. The formal celebration will go from 1 – 4pm, kicking off with a ribbon cutting, followed by open playground play, face painting, and cool treats from Vinnie’s Shaved Ice.
We invite everyone to join the celebration!
As part of the reopening, we’ll also be unveiling new mosaic artwork at the playground, created in partnership with the Pittsburgh Glass Center, and showcasing colorful balloon displays from Von Walter + funkBALLOON.
Come help us celebrate the City and community efforts that made this new playground possible.
PARKING: Please note: Reservoir Drive is closed due to the tunnel/bridge reconstruction near the playground. We recommend walking to the playground if possible. Limited parking is available on the road near the playground, which we would like to use for our handicap visitors. There is additional street parking at the park entrance and on N. Highland Ave. Reserved handicap parking is available in the small lot located at the intersection of Farmhouse Drive and Reservoir Drive.
