The Secret Garden In Pittsburgh You’re Guaranteed To Love
Meander past lush meadows. Tiptoe across stepping stones stretched across a picturesque pond. Stroll along tree-lined trails. Pittsburgh Botanic Garden promises the ideal opportunity to connect with and discover the sheer beauty of nature. Off we go to this fairy tale garden in Pittsburgh.
Hidden in Oakdale, less than a half an hour from downtown, Pittsburgh Botanic Garden provides an idyllic setting for a relaxing day.
Wear comfy, sturdy shoes if you plan to stroll through the entire garden, which generally takes two hours. One mile of the garden's trails is handicap accessible.
Bring your beloved pooch, on a leash, for your adventure in the garden. Pets are allowed as long as they remain on the public paths and their owners clean up after them.
Tiptoe across the pond on stepping stones as you explore the expansive gardens. Remember to remain on the paths and leave nature as you found it.
Wander past ponds with floating lily pads or sit in a human size bird's nest on your way to the enchanting Bookworm Glen, a fairy garden that features fairy houses.
Stop with the kids at the numerous "Exploration Stations" dotted throughout the trails and designed to allow them to play while learning more about nature.
Soak up the sun and the spectacular scenery that surrounds you by stopping for a rest on a perfectly placed bench or...
On a tree stump. Picnics are permitted in the garden. However, visitors must clean up after themselves and dispose of refuse after leaving the garden.
Snap plenty of photos to memorialize your visit to Pittsburgh Botanic Garden. Keep an eye out for the spectacular wildlife - butterflies, fish, and deer, to name just a few - that call the gardens home.
Pittsburgh Botanic Garden regularly hosts special events, including indoor tai chi and indoor yoga, and workshops that cover such topics as creating a bee habitat and how to grow tomatoes in your garden.
The gardens also provide the perfect backdrop for special occasions like weddings, reunions, and birthdays.
Discover unspoiled beauty at Pittsburgh Botanic Garden Wednesday through Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Arrive by 3:30 to gain admittance as the last tickets are sold an hour and a half prior to closing.
