Up until now, young people in Lincoln Place have either had to play their dek hockey on tennis courts or go elsewhere.

The new court features an all-weather plastic surface and costs $750,000 to build. Construction began last fall and was slowed by delays due to the pandemic. Most of the funding was secured by the city, with the Pittsburgh Penguins donating money as well, according to our news partners at TribLive.
