Parks & Recreation

Currently, the borough has two recreational centerpieces, Brownsville Riverside Wharf Park and Patsy Hillman Park. A third is under construction in the downtown through enhancements to Central Park near the wharf’s entrance and the redevelopment of several nearby acres – a green space centerpiece that will create new synergies and a catalyst for revitalization community-wide.

Brownsville Riverside Wharf Park is the community’s gateway to the Monongahela River. The landscaped and terraced wharf features benches, fishing platforms and a public boat launch. Commercial tugboats and recreational watercraft share the waters of the 127-mile Mighty Mon, a source of year-round activity. Close by is Maxwell Locks & Dam with a 24-mile pool ideal for recreational boating.

The 467-acre Patsy Hillman Park, located at 100 Hillman Park Dr., features a stocked fishing lake, five pavilions, soccer and baseball fields, trails and a concession stand for special events. The park is open from dawn to dusk and closed for winter. Each year, the park is the site of a fishing rodeo in June and July 3 fireworks. The parkland was donated Sept. 21, 1954, to Brownsville Borough and Luzerne Township by the Hillman Foundation of Pittsburgh.

In the downtown, Central Park’s enhancements will improve the river view from the corner of Bank and Market streets and include additional landscaping and benches. The upgrades will tie into the redevelopment of Snowdon Square – community green space with a gazebo, performing arts stage, walking trail, water feature, benches and public facilities. The undertaking began with a vision by a team of students from Brownsville Area High School, which won first place regionally and fourth place nationally with the “Students in Action” entry in the 2012 Jefferson Awards for Public Service. Their vision, Operation Falcon Revitalization, is becoming reality through broad-based community support.

Other recreational areas are Fenwick Park, Water Street, baseball/softball field and playground (between Monongahela and Fayette streets); and the Fifth Avenue playground (between Baltimore and Huron streets).
