Randyland, Pittsburgh
(4.6/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
Randyland is a garden made from repurposed materials found, bought & donated.

Property owner and dreamer, Randy Gilson, started in 1982 saving the empty

neighborhood lots and streetscaping 30 blocks into public art gardens. Randyland

(the yellow castle) was purchased at auction in 1996 for $10,000 and the dream began to take form.

  • Randyland was a labor of love from the heart of the owner Randy! We personally spoke with him, what a kind hearted happy man. Be a thumbprint, I will never forget! 
  • If you want to see amazing art from recycled items and hear an amazing story about the owner, you need to stop by and visit Randy at "RandyLand"! He's so awesome to talk to and he's super friendly!!! ...  more »

  • Similar ambience to the magic garden in Philadelphia but at a smaller scale. Randy is almost always on site greeting guests and explaining his art. He's fun and quirky and shares his art with the community of Pittsburgh. Defiantly a site to visit if you have spare time as it is very central to universities and food.
  • What an awesome experience! Randy is a delight to meet in person and his creations are pure inspirational go-go juice! Highly recommend you come for a visit and plan to have a visit with Randy if he's home.
  • A cultural staple tucked in the Mexican war streets of Pittsburgh's northside. Free to the public, donations welcome. If you go on the right day you might catch the man himself. ( Randy )
  • Randyland is truly a magical place and whenever I go there I feel at peace. Randy has decorated the entire place as a haven for anyone who needs a place to unwind and feel happy. Highly recommend!
  • A very fun place! Randy is a great guy and so friendly. He made our visit great! Thanks!!
