“An incredible way to view the city of Pittsburgh”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

While most people will travel up to Mt. Washington to get photographs, as well as an extraordinary view of the city of Pittsburgh and it's surrounding neighborhoods, I prefer the West End Overlook. Parking is right next to a long walkway and trail that provides unimpeded views that really makes for a nice sunset during the summer. Highly recommended, much less populated than Mt. Washington.

“Must-See City View!”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

The West End-Elliott Overlook Park is a beautiful, well maintained park that overlooks the city of Pittsburgh and provides a spectacular panoramic view of the Point and the city. It is a hidden treasure in the friendly Pittsburgh neighborhood of Elliott. There is plenty of free parking and although it's extremely crowded for viewing the City's Fourth of July fireworks, it's a great place to watch fireworks from PNC Park after Pirate games. Nearby, down on Main Street, there are a few bars and restaurants for local flavor.
