Schenley Park is the ultimate city park in the Oakland/Squirrel Hill section of Pittsburgh. Great for walking, biking, golfing, playgrounds, ice rink, and it borders the Phipps Conservatory.

Husbands, wives and lovers write their names on locks, attached to a bridge, and then throw the keys into the river Seine. Now, the Schenley Park Bridge in Oakland is taking on the look of love with numerous locks attached to a sidewalk fence.

We went for a hike here on the Panther gulch trail. We were able to get a 1 1/2 hike in starting from Phipps Conservatory, and there was more hiking to do.

Schenley Park is one of my favorites from my college days. In the Oakland area it is close to universities, museums, Phipps Conservatory and many cultural attractions.

Surrounded by Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh, the ark is a nice place to stroll in summer. Be careful, at night it is not that safe.

I love this park. There are many options for the runner. They have beautiful trails or a track depending on what you prefer. The playground area is large and has a lot of different activites for the kids.

You feel you completely left the city behind you once you submerge into this small little world. We did some of the trails here and felt the air was pure and the view grand.

This place is old and the upkeep has just been fair over the years. It's also become dangerous at night

Met a friend for lunch after touring the neighboring Catherdal of Learning & Heinz Chapel... There were several dining options, lots of tables including many under a large tent/ pavilion which was nice on a hot day. There was a large grass area where a yoga class was going on and a carousel with unique wild animals that our kids... More
