The Reynolds Street gatehouse was the first showcase project completed by The Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy. The restoration project included restoring the original mixed-clay tile roof, re-pointing stonework, and rebuilding portions of the wall. At long last, the original landscape plan by Innocenti and Webel became a reality, bringing more than 50 pin oak, hawthorne, and lacebark pine trees into the surrounding area along with planting beds that now bloom with daffodils in springtime.
