“Very relaxing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

Went here in the middle of the day. Some kids were playing in the fountain. Huge statue by Seward Johnson. Nice, sunny day in an open square with lots of seating.

“great surprise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

Wow, what a building and square around. Really something to see. There are a few tables to sit outside to eat, wish we did that, but still, we took great photos...

“PPG Place Ice Skating”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

We had a really great time skating here! The downtown area near Market Square is really pretty and they still have the Christmas tree up. I took my two older boys and one of their friends and my five year old. The cost was $50 for all of us, which was a little pricey. The kids had a fabulous time. If you need to rent their skates, be warned! They are the most uncomfortable things I have ever had on my feet! I have sore ankles today and my kids all have huge blisters. Other than that, a good time was had by all.

“Best Kept Secret in PGH”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

The ice rink at PPG PLACE is awesome. The 60 ft Christmas tree is beautiful at night. With all the glass windowed buildings and extra white twinkle lights in the trees that surround the rink it's magical.If you have ever wanted to travel to NY to Rockefeller Center to skate around the tree...forget it. Go to Pittsburgh it's a lost less expensive and you will have a wonderful experience. It's fun for a wintery family afternoon outing too.
