Over the past year, the McKees Rocks Community Development Corporation has participated on the advisory committee for the master plan detailing the renovation and expansion of Sheraden Park.
The City of Pittsburgh’s Planning Department has since finalized the master plan, and it was presented to the community for review on Jan. 23. The plan outlines several phases of improvements to the 106-year-old park, including upgraded sports courts, renovated pool and restroom facilities, improved trails, the addition of a dog park, and a greater focus on lighting and safety.
The plan also includes for the possibility of a pedestrian bridge across Chartiers Creek, which would extend from the park’s expanded wetland section into downtown McKees Rocks, allowing McKees Rocks residents access to a newly renovated 75+ acre park, as well as allowing park patrons access to restaurants and attractions in downtown McKees Rocks.
