Mayor announces details of new Schenley Park Miniature Golf Course

Mayor Luke Ravenstahl today announced that the City of Pittsburgh’s newest recreation facility – the Schenley Park Miniature Golf Course – will open on Thursday, June 16, to coincide with the opening of Citiparks outdoor swimming pools.

“Thursday marks the unofficial start of summer here in the City of Pittsburgh, as we open our outdoor swimming pools for the season and introduce the new miniature golf course in Schenley Park,” said Ravenstahl.  “Miniature golf is actually returning to the Schenley Park Skating Rink, since after its opening in the 1970s, the rink offered mini golf for many summers.  We’re excited to reintroduce an 18-hole course in a beautiful park setting for very affordable family entertainment.”

The miniature golf course will operate until late summer Tuesdays through Fridays 4 – 9 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays 1 – 9 p.m.  Cost for a round at the 18-hole course will be $4 for adults and $3 for children.  The course will officially open Thursday at 4 p.m.
