The 2005 Parks Master Plan project was financed in part by a grant from the Keystone Recreation, Parks, and Conservation fund under administration of the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Bureau of Recreation and Conservation. Special thanks to citizens of South Fayette Township for their enthusiasm and input during this study.
A groundbreaking was held Sept. 20, 2016, for a $2 million sports field project on 21 acres of township-owned property along Seminary Avenue, just outside of neighboring Oakdale Borough. Completion is expected in Spring 2018.
Preservation Park, named for a farm preserve that the property overlooks, initially will include three multipurpose athletic fields; a half-mile of paved, connected walkways; access roads; fencing; and parking. Future expansion could include features such as pavilions and playgrounds.
Each of the collegiate-size, grass fields will accommodate multiple purposes, various age groups and differing levels of play. Two fields will have a potential maximum size of 360 feet by 195 feet, and the third field will measure up to 300 feet by 195 feet.
