A very large, wooded, hilly park abutting the Oakland/University section. Ravines aplenty, large trees, mildly confusing road system. Nice views down to the Mon Valley. Nothing particularly special here, but a good urban park. Plenty of parking along the park road sides.

Lovely spot! It's even lovely at night and in the wintertime. I wish we'd had more time to spend there and hope to go back soon!

This is a lovely space to enjoy when the weather is good. There are always people playing frisbee or tossing a football. There are food vendors around, and if you're feeling lazy, you can just bring a blanket and have a picnic. Well worth a visit!

Wow! I have never been to such a scenic park. We walked down to the nature/walking trail and it led us to a huge lake with a train bridge over it and a spot where there were a few birds and people walking their dogs. A great spot to lay in the grass and reflect.

There are tons of activity areas for various sports, large grassy areas for picnics or throwing the football, great playgrounds and even a pool!

Great place to enjoy the solitude of nature despite being in the city. Wonderful area to have a picnic or just stroll around. Very beautiful

This is a park where people go to relax, have a picnic or just hang out. Seemed very safe. Observed many young college students there when we visited.

It's hard to believe that this park is in the middle of Pittsburgh. The children loved the carousel and rode many many times!

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!
