Pittsburgh (KDKA) – On Wednesday night, dozens of kids were at hand to help cut the ribbon at the brand new deck hockey rink at McBride Park in Lincoln Place.
When the ribbon was cut, the scissors were replaced with a hockey stick that broke with a new link.
Pittsburgh City Councilman Corey O’Connor worked for three years to fund the new link.

In addition to funding from the city, the Pittsburgh Penguins helped provide some resources to build the link, as well as volunteers to help build the link itself.
“We’re here to celebrate the opening of a new deck hockey facility in McBride. We’ve been waiting for a few years. Obviously now we’re back, closing the COVID, donating penguins, the city. I know the donation, and that’s great for the entire Lincoln Place neighborhood, “said O’Connor. “We want to open this up for about a year.”
Last year, McBride Park also set up new basketball and tennis courts.
