Allegheny Commons: West Park
City of Pittsburgh
Phase I Archaeological Survey
CDC completed a Phase I Archaeological Survey for the West Commons within the Allegheny Commons Park, a City of Pittsburgh Historic District. The park is Pittsburghâ€™s oldest park and an excellent example of a nineteenth century designed landscape. This image shows the park as it was originally designed.
Additional Interest: No archaeological sites were found in the area of the proposed new road. The city later decided to cancel the road project and return the park to the original landscape design.
