I drove through in the evening and noted the variety of green spaces, trails, ponds, bridges, and room for outdoor activities. It is a quiet oasis offering space to explore and enjoy outdoor activities. On one end of the park is the Phipps Conservatory with a wide range of plants. There is also a visitor center and restaurants. The park... More

Great little park nestled in the city. Nice water attractions, decent sledding hill, and some ruins to scramble around and explore.

This is a really beautiful park. There are tons of trails and green spaces, and a few play grounds for kids. There are also some great bridges that provide nice views of the city and the park below.

some great views of this part of Pittsburgh - we had a nice walk around (and up and down) after our time in the Phipps. A great way to stretch the legs!

A cross country race with dozens of high school teams took place, yet the park still felt peaceful and its size wrapped us in the comfort of perspective on our place in this city and the world. Parking was efficient, the park paths were clean, and we felt safe.

I love Schenley Park I've been coming here since I was a child. It's always fun to watch a movie on Flagstaff hill. This is a park in the middle of the Oakland section of Pittsburgh just minutes from The University of Pittsburgh easily walkable. There are many trails and paths to walk on. This park is also close to... More

Beautiful park. Can spend an entire day. Phipps Conservatory is in the park, as well as trails. I didn't get to see it all, but I look forward to going back.

This is a huge park with shaded tree-lined paths, adjacent to the botanical gardens, which are also lovely. It was easy to find parking on the streets.

If you have the time, a walk around Panther Hollow can be an extremely pleasurable experience -- anytime of the year. The pathway was built during the depression by the CCC and considerable care was taken to ensure a wide and pleasurable experience. The other features in the park are attractive but the Panther Hollow trail is my favorite.
