Friends of Mellon Park

Mellon Park has been designated as the first public arboretum in the City of Pittsburgh. It is now a protected green space for the continued study, preservation, enjoyment, and health of our environment. Friends of Mellon Park is a grassroots community organization whose mission is to support, protect, and advocate for all of Mellon Park.


Our Fox Chapel Garden Club supports the care and maintenance of twenty-six arboretum trees native to western PA, including pruning and pest control.
