A gift to the City of Pittsburgh from expatriate Mary Croghan Schenley. In 1889, she gave 300 acres plus 120 acres that she sold at a negligible cost. Pittsburgh's flagship park, its 456 acres offer recreation, cultural amenities and popular public events, such as the Vintage Grand Prix. Ice skate, play baseball, tennis, and Frisbee, or sneak in a round of golf. Schenley Park is the perfect escape to nature from the bustle of the city.
