Mellon Square Reviews
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.
