As we continue adjusting to our new normal, parks can serve as a valued place for gathering in a safe, physically distant manner year-round.

Let's step outside and enjoy a breath of fresh air. Remember, parks are for all seasons!

As we reimagine our outdoor spaces, they serve as the perfect places to enjoy a meal with your loved ones! 

Enjoy the following outdoor dining ideas!

  • Pack your own picnic! Just because it may be chilly outside, it doesn't mean you can't take your next dinner date outdoors. Be sure to bundle up and dress for the elements! 
  • Try a delicious meal from The Porch, conveniently located in Schenley Plaza! After dinner, take a stroll around Oakland's green oasis. 
  • Want to take your meal to-go? There are several restaurant kiosks located in Schenley Plaza as well. Swing by and try all that the kiosks have to offer!

Pittsburghers need parks. They're where families create lasting memories together, where people of all ages connect to nature, and where all of us can simply enjoy a breath of fresh air. Parks, in return, do more than we realize. They clean the air, filter stormwater, lower stress, and provide a natural sanctuary. 

We believe in the power of parks. We are all in. Are you?
