The Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy held a ribbon-cutting ceremony on August 28 to dedicate the PNC Children’s Plaza in Schenley Plaza, installed in appreciation of PNC’s continued support. In celebration, the Parks Conservancy provided free rides on the PNC Carousel all day.
PNC is dedicated to preparing children for the future through Grow Up Great, its $350 million, multi-year initiative that began in 2004 to help prepare children from birth to age 5 for success in school and life. The Children’s Plaza is intended to complement PNC’s program, which has served more than 1.5 million children to date.
The PNC Children’s Plaza was designed by landscape architecture firm La Quatra Bonci Associates, the Pittsburgh-based firm that designed Schenley Plaza. The cost was underwritten by Eat ‘N Park Hospitality Group, which built and operates The Porch at Schenley and will maintain the gardens in the Children’s Plaza.
Come check out the PNC Children’s Plaza as well as the other great activities available. Ride the carousel, sip on some bubble tea from Asia Tea House, lollygag on the lawn and then top it off with Dinner at The Porch at Schenley. There’s always something to do at Schenley Plaza!
