Parks and Recreation benefits the community

Posted on June 20, 2023 at 2:28 PM by Andrea Iglar

Dog owners and their furry friends are jumping for joy that our Bark Park is open at Fairview Park.

The wooded, fenced off-leash dog park is the latest feature that South Fayette Township has added to our parks for the public to enjoy. You can find details in the summer issue of South Fayette Connect.

The township values the positive impact of parks and recreation. We have prioritized investment in athletic fields and park amenities to encourage active, healthy lifestyles for children and adults.

Our Bark Park, fields, courts, playgrounds, pavilions and other outdoor public spaces serve as opportunities for friends to gather, families to celebrate and community spirit to blossom. South Fayette Township Parks and Recreation is offering an all-star lineup of community events, camps and programs this season to help you enjoy the outdoors.

For starters, a free movie at Fairview Park will be screened one Friday night each month. Bring chairs, blankets and snacks to enjoy a family movie under the stars.

Enjoy our annual Fourth of July fireworks from Fairview Park, neighboring Boyce Mayview Park or your favorite community viewing location.

Touch-a-Truck on Sun. July 16 at Fairview Park features the world’s only fan-built replica of Optimus Prime, a truck from the Transformers franchise.

South Fayette Community Day on Sat. Aug. 26 at Fairview Park provides a day of outdoor fun for everyone, just as kids are returning to school. And in October, check out the Evelsizer 5K Run and Walk.

The township also is offering a creative array of camps and recreation programs for all ages (p. 35). Plus, Summer Playground Camp for kids ages 5 to 12 is held every weekday through Aug. 11 in our parks.

I hope everyone finds time this summer to put down the remote control and enjoy the outdoors, including the wonderful parks and public spaces in South Fayette Township.
