About Green Playces: McKeesport
The third of six Green Playces, our McKeesport site is located in the 7th Ward of McKeesport. The site is owned by the Trinity Church of God in Christ.
We held the first design charrette with youth from McKeesport Area School District coordinating with their after school programs on January 26, 2016, and completed the second charrette with community partners on 5/2/2016.
