A Truly Unique Park with Numerous Amusement Options
This 4.66-acre park at 233 Civic Center Drive is a downtown destination that features a one-of-a-kind fountain, park restaurant and an eye-catching performance pavilion. The park was originally dedicated in 1976 to honor John W. Galbreath, an Ohio philanthropist, builder, Kentucky Derby breeder and owner of the Pittsburgh Pirates from 1945-1985.
