Boyce Mayview Park Wins Great Place in PA Award






























The Township of Upper St. Clair is proud to announce that Boyce Mayview Park was designated as a Great Place in PA. The 475-acre regional park won the award in the great greenways/trails category. 

Dr. Jim Segedy, FAICP, a member of the Pennsylvania Chapter of the American Planning Association, presented the award to Board of Commissioners' President Mark Christie at the September meeting. Dr. Segedy said it was the first time he saw any one place receive a unanimous vote from the board. 

Boyce Mayview Park in Upper St. Clair contains more than 10 miles of trails system. Trail users experience much environmental diversity, such as open meadows, forests, wetlands, scenic overlooks, and high value habitats for waterfowl, birds, wildlife, and plants. Green infrastructure is also prevalent in the form of pervious pavement, rain gardens and bioswales. Boyce Mayview Park is a unique asset for the community that allows persons of all abilities to enjoy the majesty of nature throughout the seasons. 

"We are honored that Boyce Mayview Park has been recognized by the American Planning Association, PA Chapter as a 2018 Great Places in Pennsylvania for its greenways and trails system. This is a reflection of the years of hard work and planning by the current and past Boards, volunteers and Township staff.
