FEBRUARY 14, 2023 NOTICE:
ALT is excited to announce that bridge improvements at Churchill Valley Greenway are nearly complete! Contractors have finished repairs to both pedestrian bridges crossing Beulah Road. Please be aware that restoration work will continue on both sides of the bridges to mend the land from equipment use.
Churchill Valley Greenway spans Beulah Road in the municipalities of Churchill and Penn Hills on the site of the former Churchill Valley Country Club. The land hosts former cart paths and community-forged trails, and is adjacent to the Bullock Pens Park and Blackridge Civic Association.
Abandoned for a decade, the former golf course is reverting to a natural meadow, and is now home to an impressive and growing list of native birds, animals, and wildflowers.
Many enjoy walking, bicycling, bird-watching, on-leash dog-walking, and more at the greenway. We hope you’ll explore its beautiful open fields, stream-side trail, and woodland paths. Allegheny Land Trust is currently making improvements to the land; visit this page for updates, and find more information in the Conceptual Planning Report from February 2022.
Neighbors of the 151-acre Churchill Valley Greenway approached Allegheny Land Trust to protect this unique local land. Abandoned for approximately a decade, the country club site had begun reverting to natural green space, and was already home to many species of native flora and fauna. Area residents made grassroots efforts to raise awareness of and dollars for protecting Churchill Valley Greenway. On Earth Day 2021, that goal was realized – the funds were fully raised, and ALT was able to purchase and protect the land in June 2021. Now, it will forever remain green space for the health, well-being, and enjoyment of current residents and future generations.
