Description:
Abstract:
The Greenways feature class consists of a complilation of the following data: agricultural easements, Allegheny Land Trust GREENPRINT, Conservation Streams buffered by 50 ft, Forested Floodplains, City of Pittsburgh designated Greenways, Land Trust Properties, Rivers buffered by 100 ft, sensitive slopes, wetlands 1 acre or more buffered by 50 ft, golf courses, parks and trails.  
Purpose:
This GIS data set was produced as a planning effort in the development of Allegheny Places, the Allegheny County Comprehensive Plan.
Supplemental_Information:
Explanation of "Types" - "Allegheny Land Trust GREENPRINT" was developed by the Trust to promote strategic land conservation by identifying highly functional landscapes that harbor biological diverstiy, manage water resources, and maintain the region's scenic landscape character. 

"Sensitive Slope Areas" includes the following: Slopes >=15% intersected w/ 10 acres woodlands, intersected w/ landslide prone soils; slopes >=25% intersected w/10 acres woodlands; and slopes >= 40%.  

Parks are classified by type as regionally significant parks (R), community significant (C), municipal parks, or park nodes.

Regionally significant parks are:
- State parks (Point State Park and State Gameland #203); County parks (Boyce Park, Deer Lakes Park, Harrison Hills Park, Hartwood Acres Park, North Park, Round Hill Regional Park, Settler's Cabin Park, South Park, and White Oak Park); City of Pittsburgh (Frick Park, Highland Park, Riverview Park, and Schenley Park).
Community parks are those which contain any of the following features:
- Acreage greater than 200 acres
- Amphitheatre
- Baseball / softball fields (4 or more, or 400 feet from home plate to center field)
- Swimming beach
- Boating access
- Campground
- Community recreation center
- Disc golf course
- Fenced dog park
- Fishing access
- Golf course
- Hunting access
- Ice rink
- Environmental facility (specifically, a facility for learning about the environment)
- Picnic pavilion (4 or more)
- Pond / lake
- Skate park
- Swimming pool
- Tennis court (6 or more)
- Trails greater than 10 miles in length
- Multi-municipal trails of any length
- Equestrian facility of any length
- Motorized access trail of any length
- Mountain bike trail greater than 5 miles in length
- Hiking trail greater than 5 miles in length

Park nodes, also known as pocket parks, generally serve one development or small neighborhood.  All other parks, or parks for which community park criteria was unavailable (as was the case for the City of Pittsburgh], are municipal parks.
