Pittsburgh Police Firing Range

The open-air firing range used by Pittsburgh Police for firearms training is located east of Washington Boulevard, about halfway up the hill that leads to the Shuman Center and the former Veteran’s VA Hospital. For more information about it and its impacts, please see this joint statement from the HPCC and the Highland Park Community Development Corporation. 

The HPCC is collecting written testimonials and/or audio files to document the impacts of the firing range on City residents, nearby communities, and park users. There are two ways to submit information.
