  • Doubles as a park. Great place for walks and bike rides. Safer than general neighborhood streets for kids to learn to bike, etc., with the exception of some steep hills. Great place to experience some nature without leaving paved road. If you're looking for hiking trails, the cemetery connects to the Frick Park down near Reynolds Street.
  • A very interesting and beautiful cemetery. I have found this to be a great place for a quiet walk . Being in a place with so much history makes it easier to put your own life in perspective.
  • Beautiful. Peaceful. Great place to run, walk and contemplate life. The grounds and mausoleums are beautiful.
  • Nice place hours of operation are bad. In order to put flower on my mom's grave I have to be late for work or leave early.
  • An interesting part of Pittsburgh history
