This was a great walk for us, initially thought it was just like any other park to have a lazy afternoon in but when we got up near the conservatory and turned around we were treated to a beautiful view of the University area.

Nice and big park. There are tennis courts and soccer fields inside. The park is not crowded but courts may be busy at evenings.

Very large and very beautiful park. Within is a golf course, swimming pool, tennis courts, ice skating rink and miles upon miles of biking and walking trails. Well worth seeing for visitors to the Pittsburgh area.

This beautiful, large park offers fun for every age and interest. It is home to the Phipps Conservatory and borders the Carnegie museums and the Frick Museum of Art. It has miles of biking and walking paths as well as oceans of green lawn to picnic or just rest for a spell. Family fun for all ages!

We can play tennis, soccer, ice skate and golf etc. Especially for tennis, we can sometimes play with my wife and two kids. Also, golf price is really awesome. Only 15 dollers for 18 holes.

What a lovely place to take a stroll thru the park. It has many different features that parks have and hosts many events here. My favorite place on a lovely sunset night is the oval to check out the city view.

You dont find many parks like this in the middle of a city. There are many trails or if you prefer the sidewalk, there are plenty of those as well. A nice place to relax, or play a game of tag with friends.

Schenley Park sits smack dab between two internationally known Universities in the heart of Pittsburgh's Cultural district. Situated between Carnegie-Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh, Schenley Park has been a place to relax, enjoy nature and participate in many of the sponsored activities for students of both these institutions, as well as the residents of Pittsburgh.

A wonderful place to walk and enjoy life. Lots of activities and they have a real Disc Golf Course. I could spend a week walking around and enjoying the park in all of it's variety. Take your time and get away from the noise.
