A daily destination for university students, business-people, and outdoor enthusiasts, the park also hosts major annual events such as the Vintage Grand Prix and the Pittsburgh Race for the Cure.

Buurt
“Aside from the beautiful views of the city, Mount Washington is its own little town. It has all of the amenities needed so that you really do not need to go to the city, but if you want to, it is just a few minutes away. There is a Pharmacy, a Grocery Store, a Post Office and a Bank. Bigham Tavern is a 5 minute walk and all of their food is delicous. They have great wings and Wednesday night is their Wing special. You can look it up on YouTube as it was on Travel Channels Food Paridise in an episode called " Cheat Day" . The chef is one of my best friends. It is a great place to watch a game or have some beers. Shiloh Street which is a 5 minute walk in the opposite direction near the Monongahela Incline has tons of options. there is a Subway, a Diner, Packs and dogs for quick eats and beers by the bottle, a Wines and Spirits store (PA Liquor Store), the local Post Office, an Ice Cream shot, Red Beards which has excellent food and a couple of other little bars. Coughlin's law is an outside bar/resturaunt not far from Shiloh Street. You will usually find me at a local place on Shiloh Street called Niko's Cafe especially on Tuesday nights for Taco night or Wednesdays for Perogie night. Get two large soft or hard tacos and a pitcher of domestic beer for less than $12+tip. it is one of the cheapest bars around but note, it is cash only and allows smoking. There is an ATM inside. ”
