You dont find many parks like this in the middle of a city. There are many trails or if you prefer the sidewalk, there are plenty of those as well. A nice place to relax, or play a game of tag with friends.

Schenley Park sits smack dab between two internationally known Universities in the heart of Pittsburgh's Cultural district.

A wonderful place to walk and enjoy life. Lots of activities and they have a real Disc Golf Course. I could spend a week walking around and enjoying the park in all of it's variety. Take your time and get away from the noise.

Schenley Park is a great place in all seasons for hiking and biking. Several school including Carnegie Mellon, Pitt, and Duquesne start their cross country meets at Schenley Oval. The park's ice skating rink and tennis courts also offer public recreation opportunities. I love the views from vistas in the partk.

This park runs through many of the old, established Pittsburgh neighborhoods. It's what gives the city so much of its family friendly vibe.

We visited the dinosaur playground area. It had stuff my almost 3 year old could do and stuff bigger kids would enjoy. It was maintained ok. From there we walked down a path and steps to the pond. Not all of the steps were well maintained but it was a nice family hike!

The park is clean, has great views of the Cathedral of learning, the Phipps conservatory. Great place to listen to a concert or attend the farmer's market. lively part of town! The park is hilly so maybe not the best for playing sports.

We stopped here after driving five hours with two kids. There were multiple playgrounds for the kids and a gorgeous hiking trail running along a stream.
