Event Description

We're introducing a new hiking series at Allegheny Commons Park, Meet Me at the Fountain.


Inspired by the positive response to our Restorative Hikes program, which began this year and takes place in Frick Park Woods, Meet Me at the Fountain hikes, which are free and open to the public, will take place on Saturday mornings at 10:00 a.m.


June 29, July 20, August 10               
Host: City of Asylum


Join City of Asylum for a walking tour that will start at the fountain, and end at Alphabet City, our cultural center on W. North Ave. Learn about City of Asylum's exiled writer residencies through a guided tour of public art on Sampsonia Way in the Northside. Our mission to defend, celebrate, and build freedom of expression. Discover public art and free community events right in your backyard!


August 24, September 14
Host: National Aviary Ornithologist Bob Mulvihill


Join National Aviary Ornithologist, Bob Mulvihill, on a leisurely bird walk from the recently restored Northeast Fountain in Allegheny Commons to the National Aviary and back.  Pittsburgh’s oldest park is home to some of the city’s oldest trees, and these provide stopover habitat for a wide variety of migratory birds like Scarlet Tanagers, Yellow Warblers, Wood Thrushes, and Red-eyed Vireos.  Bring your binoculars if you have them, and keep an eye and ear out for birds as you walk along the wide Victorian-era promenade paralleling North Avenue toward Lake Elizabeth. Walk through the historic Rose Garden and around the National Aviary to its East Entrance to see a beautiful rock garden and glimpse Andean Condors and other birds that call the National Aviary’s outdoor Condor Court habitat home.


Stay tuned! Additional dates and programs to be added soon.
