Mellon Square is an urban park in Downtown Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It is the first Modernist park built above a parking garage. With its distinctive black, white and green geometric pavement, it is a prominent urban oasis and gathering spot in Downtown Pittsburgh.

The square, bounded by Smithfield Street, William Penn Place, and Oliver and Sixth Avenues, is surrounded by prominent downtown buildings including the Oliver Building, 525 William Penn Place, Omni William Penn Hotel, and the Regional Enterprise Tower. It has long been a popular lunchtime destination for downtown workers. In addition, retail shops are housed underneath it, along the Smithfield Street side of the square.

  • Just a lovely spot to enjoy a lunch in Downtown Pittsburgh. Surrounded by gorgeous architecture... Great little spot! :)
  • I like this park because there is plenty of seating and you can see a lot of the city from it. It is closed in the winter. Steps away from the Starbucks in the William Penn Hotel. Not far from like 5 other Starbucks locations. Close to Burlington, the largest clothing store in the city. Also nearby Steel City Tees, one of the coolest clothing stores in the city.
