The Pittsburgh City Council has unanimously passed a bill that allows the Department of Public Works and Recreation to construct two "Splash Zones" within the city. One will be in the Troy Hill neighborhood and one will be in Beechview, across from Beechwood Elementary School. The quarter of a million dollars allocated in the bill is not enough to build one of the "Splash Zones" but city officials are confident that they can find funding for the water parks through other means, including some private investment. No completion date was announced.
