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

This park is a lot bigger and it appears on a map. The park is beautiful was plenty of room for everybody. It's a nice place to walk, run, or bike. There is a full size golf course, a disc golf course, baseball fields, small monuments, and plenty address and wooded land to traverse through.

If a park is squeezed in the city, it is usually prone to the city noises, traffic and fumes. Schenley Park is a pleasant exception. Its creators used natural landscape (hills, little valleys) to create a set of environments where you can walk, play or just sit back and relax, without being disturbed. Hilltops offer quite a remarkable view over... More

What a great place to walk/jog. Quiet and easy trail. Some stairs and inclines, but beautiful walk in the woods.

This was the second park we visited in the Pittsburgh area. It was complicated to drive through it and find the playground area. We were with another family, and it took each of us several loopyloops to actually get to the playground. It is one of those deals where if you aren't in the correct lane... you just missed it....

Lovely park in the Oakland section of Pittsburgh. It is near both University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University. Phipps Conservatory is at the entrance of the park. The Pittsburgh Grand Prix is held there there every year. A good place to have a family cutting.Good place for a

There is a choice of activities within the park but there is a significant amount of through traffic. Finding the information center was difficult - and then it did not have much information.

Take a day or two and explore the wonder of this park. From its vistas to its valleys you will never run out of things to see. More than one play ground. Tennis Courts and a hidden lake that is worth the walk down.
