Schneley Park is a great place to walk around! There are great jogging and walking trails that are both paved and unpaved. If you prefer trail runs, this is a great place (so is Frick Park!). Strollers are easy to use at Schenley Park.

Schenley Park is a wonderful place to jog, walk, and take dogs. It's serene, but when you do encounter people, they are nearly always friendly. It's my favorite place in Pittsburgh.
