Pittsburgh’s Mellon Square Park was ahead of its time when constructed in 1955, during Renaissance I.  The 1.3 acre park is now on the list of National Historic Places and offers downtown office workers a green place to go during the day.  Surrounded by downtown skyscrapers, the park has water features, lighting, trees, plants, flowers and is a tranquil refuge in the Golden Triangle.  The money for this project has been raised by the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy and no city dollars will be used for the upgrade.  The City of Pittsburgh does maintain the park, however, the facelift will not use taxpayer dollars.
