MILLVALE (KDKA) — A hip, new park is coming to the Pittsburgh region.
And this one is creating a lot of buzz because this one will have something for everyone, but the big draw will be food trucks.READ MORE: Protester Sues City, Three Pittsburgh Police Officers Claiming He Was Injured In Last Year's Protests
The Pittsburgh Food Truck Park, the first of its kind in our area, will be opening in Millvale’s Riverfront Park, along the Three Rivers Heritage Trail.
But you’ll be able to do more than just eat at this park.
In addition to “a daily rotation” of local food trucks, their website says the park will have a beer garden featuring local drafts, a game yard, a performance venue and event space.
The park’s website says all are welcome and “the Three Rivers Heritage Trail allows easy bike commuting to the park from many Pittsburgh neighborhoods.”READ MORE: South Hills Village Mall Offering Active Shooter Preparedness Training To Retailers
Tony, Shawn and Matt Lang have leased a portion of a parking lot in Riverfront Park in Millvale, to rent to a handful of food trucks.
“We’re thinking maybe a hundred food trucks in the area right now,” Matt Lang says. “However many of them want to be involved. We’re going to rotate about six through daily.”
They’ll tear down a chain link fence, line up the food trucks, and convert a nearby building into a beer garden. Closer to the Allegheny River, they’ll have an outdoor game area, where bocce or cornhole can be played. They’ll also have an outdoor fire pit. It’s just one more venture for brothers who’ve opened successful restaurants in Cranbery and Indiana, Pennsylvania.
“The Facebook page and our website have been live for about three weeks now,” Matt says, “and we probably have about 15 food trucks that have filled out a vendor request form already.”
