RESTORING A PUBLIC GATHERING SPACE Today, the Visitor Center is a popular rental space and houses a year-round café.
ABOUT THE VISITOR CENTER
The Schenley Park Cafe and Visitor Center was the second major improvement project completed by the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy. The restoration of the century-old structure was completed in 2002. The goal of the project was not just to restore a historic structure, but to turn it into a useful and attractive park amenity that had a positive impact on its environment.
Today, park enthusiasts can visit the Visitor Center and enjoy all it offers! The building is a popular rental space and houses a year-round café that offers a coffee bar, light lunch fare, trail maps, and clean, wheelchair-accessible restrooms. From the delicious bites available for breakfast and lunch to the peaceful terrace overlooking the trails of Schenley Park, there's truly something for everyone to enjoy about this community space.
The Schenley Park Cafe is open Tuesday - Sunday from 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
