The Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy was founded in December 1996 by a group of citizens concerned with the deteriorating conditions of Pittsburgh's historic city parks.

A nonprofit organization, the Parks Conservancy has worked closely with the City of Pittsburgh since 1998 under an official public-private partnership agreement to restore the city's four regional parks: Frick, Highland, Riverview, and Schenley.

To date, the Parks Conservancy has raised over $100 million for parks and has completed 17 major improvement projects. Currently active in 22 parks, the Parks Conservancy has expanded into community and neighborhood parks throughout Pittsburgh.
For travelers who use our international travel planner, Pittsburgh holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Schenley Park and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Very nice. Good to fly a kite, also to run around and play. Delicious mulberries along the path. The kids beg me to go there, even when it's snowy 😁! Wonderful for sledding!
  • Beautiful park. Go to the top to get a full panoramic view of the sunset over the city skyline. Also has an 18-hole disc golf course and a well-maintained track.
