Wonderful Fun at Green
Which park would you like to visit?
Officially renamed Green Tree Park by Borough Council
in 2002, this park is home to Hemlock I & II
ballfields, the Point Park University Ball Field as
well as an improved street hockey rink, a small play
area for children, soccer fields, a walking track and
a leash-free dog park. Hemlock I, the street hockey
rink, and the walking track are lighted so they can be
enjoyed during the evening hours. Green Tree Park is
used in conjunction with the Aiken School fields to
host Green Tree's annual Octoberfest. A concession
stand, restroom facilities and landscaped parking area
make access to this multi-functional park easy.
walking track was made possible through a joint effort
between Green Tree Borough and the Keystone Oaks
School District. It is a 1/3-mile walking track
circling Aiken Fields (behind Aiken Elementary) and
abutting Hemlock Fields and the Point Park Ball Field.
The track is lighted, thanks to a generous Bright
Lights grant from Duquesne Light, the Schafer
Foundation, and the Green Tree Rotary. Aiken II ball
field was recently redone by Green Tree's Public Works
department and the Point Park Ball Field parking lot
was paved for easy parking and access to both the ball
field and the walking track. New restrooms are
available next to the track, thanks in part to a grant
from State Senator Wayne Fontana.
