Our Favorite Pittsburgh Things: Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens

 

Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens is one of Pittsburgh’s most beautiful locations. Located in Oakland’s Schenley Park, Phipps offers many environments for visitors to explore—alone or with a tour guide.

Here are some things you can enjoy:

  • Visit one of the facility’s many gardens and plant exhibits, including an orchid collection, palms and desert plants. Statues, glass art, paintings and a variety of other artwork are also displayed throughout the gardens.
  • Attend one of the many events and shows hosted at Phipps throughout the year. The Summer Flower Show exhibit runs through Monday, Oct. 5. This year’s Fall Flower Show, which will showcase chrysanthemums and their importance in Japanese culture, will begin Oct. 17 and run through Nov. 8.
  • Take a class! Phipps offers a variety of programs on gardening, arts and crafts, healthy living, and sustainability for people of all ages and abilities.
  • Grab a bite to eat at the café, which offers organic, local food.
