AAS Display Garden Feature

Schenley Plaza operated by Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy

4250 Forbes Ave., Pittsburgh, PA 15213

Used as a parking lot for decades, Schenley Plaza was restored by the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy and community partners. The June 2006 grand opening event brought 40,000 people into Oakland to visit this new park modeled after New York City’s Bryant Park.

Approved as an All-America Selections Flower Display Garden in October 2013, visitors enjoy the AAS display located in the garden area amid abundant native plants, perennials, shrubs, ornamental grasses, groundcovers, flower bulbs and annuals designed to withstand Pittsburgh’s city conditions and frequent park users.

This lush 5-acre garden jewel includes a great lawn, food kiosks, a full-service restaurant, the PNC carousel, movable chairs and café tables, and space for programming events and activities. Awards garnered by the Plaza include the 2009 Silver Award for Environmentally Sustainable Projects from The International Awards for Livable Communities; 2009 IDA Pinnacle Award for Public Space from the International Downtown Association, Commonwealth Award (Silver) from 10thousand Friends of Pennsylvania, the 2008 Best Place to Hang Out from The Pitt News and 10 Best Best Award from 10Best.com/Trusted Advice for Travelers, and the 2006 Dominion Community Impact Award.

The Plaza continues to grow each year under the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy's management, and it has become a destination for families, students, business people, and community groups looking for a great space to appreciate what the city has to offer.

Future plans for Schenley Plaza include a free lending library offering on-site use of newspapers, magazines and books; games, including backgammon, checkers and chess, carriage rides, winter programming and public art.
