One of America’s Great Public Spaces
Did you know we have an oasis right here in Downtown Pittsburgh? Mellon Square, dubbed as Pittsburgh’s Downtown “oasis” by the American Planning Association, was named one of 10 Great Public Spaces in America for 2008. Nestled above an underground parking garage on Smithfield Street between Oliver and Sixth Avenues, Mellon Square, with its bronze fountains, granite benches and beautiful planters offers a welcoming space for lunching and events, including concerts and rallies. If you’re not familiar with this great urban space, take your next lunch break in the park and experience its history and charm, not to mention the panoramic views of the extraordinary buildings that ring the Square.
