  • Bob O'Connor Golf Course at Schenley Park
    Designed by Mark Ormison in 1897, the fairways of Bob O'Connor Golf Course at Schenley Park sprawl over 51 acres and invite linksmen to frolic among foliage that has been flourishing for more than a century, while also gazing out on metropolitan views. Players find themselves challenged right from the get-go with a second hole that is also the toughest, but can strive for birdies at holes 8 and 17 to recover. At the 11th hole, golfers encounter a quirky rectangular green, whose geometric origins are likely found in a house having occupied the space long ago. The course is managed by the local charity The First Tee Pittsburgh, which strives to encourage good character, values, and healthy life choices in children through the game of golf, and proceeds from the course benefit its programs. Before hitting the course, players can hone their form at the course’s driving range in good weather, take lessons with a Class A PGA professional, or strengthen their swings at the Full Swing simulator, which tracks ball flight, speed, and distance in real time. The simulator offers high-definition projections of more than 35 notable courses, including Pebble Beach, Oakmont Country Club, Pinehurst Country Club, and Harbour Town Golf Links, and lets golfers sharpen their swings in the dead of winter without fear of losing a limb to frostbite or abominable ground squirrels.

  • PNC Carousel
    More than a century ago, the original Schenley Park Carousel took its first spin at the corner of Panther Hollow and Greenfield Roads. So when the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy breathed new life into the park in 2006 after many years as a parking lot, a carousel was viewed as essential to carrying on the land's legacy. The PNC Carousel is the crown jewel of Schenley Plaza, its mirrored facades glittering in the sunlight with every revolution. Like the original, a menagerie of animals sponsored by some of Pittsburgh's most charitable citizens honors the city's diverse population and secret wishes for an all-animal city council. The Victorian-style finishes are complemented by a pipe organ, which plays old-fashioned tunes as little ones glide up and down on eagles, giraffes, and elephants. Older riders are welcome to board the stationary seats, and the wheelchair-accessible design ensures all guests can take a spin.

  • Cathedral of Learning/Nationality Rooms
    When Dr. John Gabbert Bowman became Chancellor of the University of Pittsburgh after World War I, he had a vision of a monument to education. So he built it, creating an astonishingly detailed work of architectural art that was also a fully usable addition to the growing university's classroom space. The Cathedral of Learning didn't just honor the university?it was a tribute to the city itself. More than two dozen rooms serve as portals into a golden era of the history and heritage of nations ranging from Yugoslavia to Africa's ancient Asante kingdoms. And the collection is still expanding. The Europe-centric first floor boasts the oldest rooms. Modeled on a Romanian Orthodox monastery, the Romanian Room is equipped with hand-carved chairs and an Orthodox iconostasis, while the stone arches and column bas reliefs of the Irish room symbolize the Gaelic oratories of the 12th century. On the third floor, visitors find the Indian room, boasting dramatic arena seating and a colorful watercolor triptych, and the baroque style of the Ukrainian classroom with vividly carved wood and colorful ceramics traditionally designed to test the willpower of rowdy young students.
