Boyce Mayview Park (Community & Recreation Center, The Miracle League Field, The Outdoor Classroom, and more!)

 

In 1996 Upper St. Clair acquired 238 acres of the Mayview Farm property from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The location of this property directly adjacent to the Township's 236-acre Boyce Park property called out for a Masterplan process which would examine potential development and conservation opportunities for the now combined Boyce/Mayview Park.


These two largely undeveloped properties contain extensive woodlands, level fields and open spaces as well as stream valleys, hiking trails and active vegetable gardens.

Chartiers Creek and the extensive wetlands constructed and owned by PennDOT form the western boundary of the properties and the creek and wetlands together with the park land, provide a diverse habitat to waterfowl, birds, plants and many types of wildlife.

Gilfillan Park


Gilfillan Park is 59.57 acres of farm and woodlands, including a 1.25-mile mulched walking trail along Rt. 19 and Orr Road.

In 1976 Upper St. Clair purchased nearly 60 acres of land from the Gilfillan Family to be used as a park. A Nature Trail, used also for walking, hiking, jogging and cross-country skiing, was later established around this property.

The trail winds through woodlands of native trees such as white ash, American beech and sassafras, some of which are estimated to be over 400 years old.

Over 20 different species are marked and identified along the Trail and in the "Gilfillan Trail: Tree Identification Guide" which is available at the Township's Department of Recreation and Leisure Services.

The park surrounds the adjacent 15-acre Gilfillan Farm which was left to the Upper St. Clair Historical Society in 2001 in the will of Margaret Gilfillan.

Memorial Garden

 

The Memorial Garden is located behind the Township Building near Clair's Kennel.

On September 8, 1994, ten members of the Upper St. Clair Community perished on Flight 427 when it crashed in Hopewell Township near Pittsburgh International Airport.

In friendship and support for the families and friends in our community, the Township of Upper St. Clair constructed a permanent memorial garden with the hope that a lasting memorial will comfort the families and honor the deceased.

The groundbreaking ceremony for the garden was held on November 9, 1994. The garden was designed to be a peaceful area along McLaughlin Run Creek, near the Township Municipal Building.

The memorial garden includes benches, shade trees, perennial beds, Nordic holly, rhododendrons and a walkway.

The garden was designed by GWSM,Inc., Landscape Architects. Gaydos Monuments donated the granite memorial with the names of the Upper St. Clair residents who were on the flight.Volunteers have helped to plant the garden and donated trees, bulbs and flowers.

Veterans Monument Park

 Upper St. Clair Veterans Park was dedicated on Veterans Day, November 11, 2011.  The Veterans Park is a place to honor and reflect upon the sacrifices made by those who have served and are currently serving in the United States Military.  The Park was built as an outdoor classroom setting with seven Monuments, one for each branch of the Military: Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, Merchant Marines and the National Guard.  Each monument has a brief history of the service on one side and a collage of representative pictures on the other.  The unique monument and collage design almost comes alive during peaceful reflection.


The Veterans Park is located between McLaughlin Run Road and the Municipal Building Parking lot, across from the Upper St. Clair High School main entrance.  Funding for the Veterans Monument Park was made possible through a combination of a $100,000 grant from the Allegheny County Community Infrastructure and Tourism Fund, donated Township Property, individual and corporate donations and in-kind services.  The Community is proud to honor our military service men and women whose selfless sacrifices guarantee our freedom and way of life..
