Went to find the location of the old ball park and discovered it has been preserved to a reasonable degree, now on the U Pitt campus. The original center field is intact. Home plate is inside Posvar Hall. Must visit for fans of classic baseball.

We enjoyed the playground with our 2 boys ages 3 and 6. We picked up food to go and ate at the picnic tables right next to play area. There was a waterfountain and portapotty nearby. Great play areas!

One of the most beautiful and well maintained parks I have ever seen. Pittsburgh certainly as that "welcome" spirit

My best memories are of a part of the park that was called the fruit loop. It was a gay cruising area.me and some friends thought we were super brave going to it. the park itself is wonderful

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. And it's still a great place for a quiet picnic during most of the summer. But, for about ten days every July, it takes on a whole different attitude! Suddenly, it's crowded... More

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.
