“Peaceful park with spectacular views”

West End - Elliot Overlook Park
Ranked #57 of 183 things to do in Pittsburgh
Attraction details
Reviewed 20 August 2014

This is a beautifully landscaped neighborhood park in the neighborhood of Elliott complete with a post card quality view of the city of Pittsburgh. This is certainly a great park to unwind after a long day or to enjoy a picnic at with a blanket in the grass.

My husband and I stopped at the West End Overlook and were delightfully surprised at how lovely it was. The sidewalks were nice. The landscaping was lovely, there were places to sit and the parking lot was clean and well marked. Even though it was a hazy day we really enjoyed ourselves. Pittsburgh is such a beautiful city.

West End Overlook is a very nice park. Trees, grass and path through a trellis welcome you at the entrance. The park overlooks downtown Pittsburgh but your able to see down all three rivers a view you can't get from more popular Mt Washington. Summertime movies are played for movie in the park night while able to see the city lights below. Here your able to put a blanket on the lawn and relax, there's no street traffic. It's a great place for out of town visitors to stop, and enjoy.

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.
