Schenley park is a great place to go to bike, hike, or simply relax. Check out their concepts in Schenley...they are free! We just attended one a few weeks ago...very relaxing and plenty of hill seating. Many hiking trails that will take you into tranquil areas of the woods. Nice sightseeing or picture taking place. Bikers have many places to... More

There is a bridge, while crossing into Schenley park, which hold locks. This is called the locks of love bridge. You and a loved one can put a lock on the fence to show your love for each other. Names and dates are even added.

There is so much in and around this park. U of Pitt, Cathedral of Learning, Phipps, Locks of Love bridge, etc etc. Take some time and walk around and enjoy everything!

This is a nice park right next to U of Pittsburgh. If you have a bit of time and want to exercise, it is a good place. I, however, don't think it is worth a visit if you are tight on time. It is like any other parks.

We walked through the park while walking around campus. It is probably also a great place for a jog.

Big beautiful park with rolling hills. Nice for walks, picnics, watching movies in the summer, first dates, last dates, dog walking, etc.

The winding road around the park made it impossible without a car, but we stopped at a disk golf court that sloped downwards and had a great view of the river and bridges, and the downtown of Pittsburgh. On a nice day, it is great to picnic on the lawns.

This park has a great view of the sunset. A huge opening at the center of the park provides an ideal spot for sunset and photography. There is a big ground for playing and practice right nearby. Also this is probably the only place in Pittsburgh where you get a clear sunset view.

Whether you want to hike, walk or jog this is a must place to spend a couple of hours. Not a far walk to The Cathedral of Learning.

This is one of the most beautiful parks in Pittsburgh. I've been coming here for years. Flagstaff hill and all the paths and trails. Panther Hollow is being redone. Phipps Conservatory and gardens is just a delight to see. It's a very large park to explore. There used to be riding stables here but they burned down in the early... More
