Hays Woods would have been the biggest park in Pittsburgh. Then 75 acres were set aside for housing.

It was on June 7, 2016, that Mayor Bill Peduto announced the purchase of the Hays Woods property for $5 million. “Gift of 660 acres by Pittsburgh Development Group II to create largest park in the City,” the press release read. Now, a year and five months later, plans for Hays Woods are beginning to emerge.
