Community Charrettes for Frick Park

April 20, 2011

We’re beginning a community design process with Pittsburgh Parks to design a new treehouse in Pittsburgh’s largest park, Frick Park. We are hosting public charrettes, and we need community members and children to help us generate ideas.
Sign up here:
Kid-Centric Meeting
Thursday April 28 5:30 – 7:30p
Colfax Elementary School, 2332 Beechwood Boulevard
The Parks Conservancy is developing design concepts for the first of Frick Park’s outdoor learning spaces. We need your input! This session is all about kids. We invite children, parents, and teachers to join us for a fun, hands-on session where we’ll learn what kids would love to see in the park. Space is limited, and a light dinner will be provided.

Site Visit at Frick Park
Thursday June 2 5:30 – 7:30p
Frick Environmental Center, 2005 Beechwood Boulevard
Everyone is welcome at this outdoor session, where we’ll be visiting the location of the treehouse and asking everyone for their ideas. Following this activity, the project team will begin to develop design concepts.

Design Concept and Feedback
Thursday, July 28, 5:30 – 7:30p
Location TBD
At this public meeting, the project team will unveil a preliminary design for the treehouse, and community members can provide feedback. We’ll have an activity room for kids while the parents attend the meeting.

Hope to see you there!
