ThePittsburghChannel.com - News - Councilman Pushing For More Pittsburgh Recreational Areas Pittsburgh has 26,000 acres of parks and recreation areas, but city councilman Jim Motznik wants more.Jim, our problems are not space nor hardware problems. Rather, we have software and programming problems. That is where the focus should be put.
Motznik introduced two resolutions in council to add 500 new acres of greenway space to Frick Park, along with other city parks and public areas.
Among the neighborhoods that would have bigger greenways are Oakland, Southside, Hazelwood and Mount Washington.
Motznik said Pittsburghers need more areas for relaxation and family activities.
But, I expect I'm speaking Greek to Jim.
