Action Plan

FOR Park is comprised of faithful stewards of Riverview Park. Their deep knowledge of the park’s master plan, completed and proposed projects, strong community knowledge and relationships and work to build the Friends of Riverview Park make them a valuable partner.

FOR Park’s primary purpose is to champion the Master Plan, and to advise and support the City of Pittsburgh and Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy staff in planning, design development and project prioritization. The Initiative serves as liaison to community stakeholders and fill the function of “park watchdog.”
