Lonely Planet review

For pretty much any outdoor pursuit, the best option is the elaborate 1700-acre system of the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy , which comprises Schenley Park (with a public swimming pool and golf course), Highland Park (with swimming pool, tennis courts and bicycling track), Riverview Park (sporting ball fields and horseback riding trails) and Frick Park (with hiking trails, clay courts and a bowling green), all with beautiful running, cycling and in-line skating trails.
