Great place for an autumn day walk. My twin 6 year olds were able to walk all the trails with no problems. The Japanese garden was our favorite spot!

Found this place and decided to visit with friends. What a great little hidden gem. It was a great walk, with such wonderful little scenery places everywhere. Only $9 with a discount if you live in Allegheny county. I will be back.

Spent an afternoon wandering through the trails. Loved the idea that they have reclaimed the land and have created an oasis not far from the city. The pond was the highlight.

Very nice park. Good trails, well marked. Lotus pond was an unusual site in Pennsylvania. This park is good for adults and children. We went on a hot summer day but it is well shared so it wasn't too bad. Trails are approximately 3 miles...More

Our visit was a little disappointing since .several trails were closed. Felt like we missed a lot of things that we were not able to see. We had our two grandchildren with us. Too long in between things to see for them. They loved walking...More

I found out about this place on Groupon and I'm so glad I did! My family and I spent at least 3 hours walking around the area, exploring everything there was to see. The lotus pond was beautiful and peaceful, my kids loved the Bookworm...More

We had requested a tour to learn about this 480 acre garden just being developed. This area was a coal strip mine, but is being made beautiful again, as we learned in the slide show. A master plan is in place and it will be...More

We went for Mother's Day, but did not participate in the brunch that they had. We were there later in the afternoon and had a very pleasant walk. The dogwoods and daffodils had already bloomed, I'm sure they were pretty. There were some tulips still...More
