The Lending Library ENHANCE YOUR TIME IN NATURE

About the Lending Library

The Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy has a collection of exploration tools that visitors can borrow to enhance their park visit. These items can currently be borrowed at two different locations: The Frick Environmental Center in Frick Park and the Schenley Park Visitor Center. Each park user must register to become a member of our Lending Library to keep a record of who is using our items and to contact participants in the event of lost or broken items.
