WiFi now available at South Pittsburgh area parks


August 8, 2017

Comcast has installed WiFi hotspots at nine City of Pittsburgh Parks as well as at three city Recreation Center playgrounds, continuing a partnership with the City that began last year with the provision of WiFi access to 22 senior and rec centers.

City parks users can now stay connected at the following locations:

• Olympia Park, Mt. Washington

• McKinley Park, Beltzhoover

• Phillips Park, Carrick

• Davis Parklet, Squirrel Hill

• Ormsby Playground and Park, South Side Flats

• Frick Park, Squirrel Hill

• August Wilson Park, Hill District

• Moore Park and Pool, Brookline

• Grandview Park, Allentown

Warrington Rec Center Playground, Beltzhoover

• Jefferson Rec Center Playground, Central Northside

• Ammon Rec Center Playground, Hill District

“WiFi at these Pittsburgh parks is an excellent amenity that will attract a greater number of park users,” said Jenn Dailey, director of marketing and communications for the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy. “It will also open up opportunities for digitally-based information about the park to enhance their experience. More and more visitors to Pittsburgh’s beautiful parks are asking for WiFi access.

“The Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy is excited Comcast is bringing WiFi to these parks. People who might need to stay connected for personal or business can now make excursions they otherwise would have to miss. Parks are places to communicate and build communities, whether in-person or online.”
