The North Park and Settlers Cabin Park dek hockey rinks were constructed as part of the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation’s Project Power Play initiative, a $2.3 million effort funded by the foundation and Highmark to build 12 dek hockey rinks in the region during a three-year period. To date, 11 have been built, and the final one in South Park is scheduled to be completed by the end of this year.
