Lake Wightman - The lights along Wightman Street are reflected in water that flowed into the rain garden on in Wightman Park. The park, which underwent a complete rehabilitation in 2020 is also now hooked up to the stormwater system from the streets around the park. April 11, when the 2.5 inches of rain fell on Squirrel Hill, was the first test of the whole system which showed that the infrastructure worked. Find out more about what's happening in the East End by picking up Print at one of our retailers.

City considers expanding bow hunting of deer

Mayor Ed Gainey's administration is considering expanding the pilot program in which archers killed a combined 108 deer in Frick and Riverview parks. The deer population doubles every two years. In 2020 and 2021 500 deer were killed in collisions with cars. The  program may be expanded into Schenley, Emerald View and Highland parks, with possible eventual expansion into Hays and the greenways.
