This park is a gem for young and old, built during the gilded age when people with lots of money gave some of their wealth away for the greater good, instead of parking it offshore in a bank.

Schenley Park is a beautiful park tucked away in busy Oakland. Several charity walks and runs are held in this park. The grounds are very nicely maintained and it is family and pet friendly.

In its own rite, Schenley Park is a beautiful place to visit. When I was a child living in Pittsburgh, we went on many picnics in Schenley Park.

Outdoor "food court". Free WIFI. Museums and colleges near by. Quite place to relax. There is no shopping though.

I sat on a bench in the golf course in the shade. There was a great view of Oakland. It was nice to watch the golfers; there was a fence around the benches so no stray golfballs could hit me. Great place.

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!
