The closest park to the Theater is Buhl Community Park at Allegheny Square, a revitalized community resource for Pittsburgh’s Northside, sits at the former crossroads of Federal Street and Ohio Street in front of the Children’s Museum. Pittsburgh’s oldest park, Allegheny Commons, dates to 1867 when it was designed to provide “breathing places” for the citizens of what was then the sooty city of Allegheny. The Northside is also home to Pittsburgh’s 4th largest municipal park, Riverview Park. This is a densely wooded and hilly park with walking trails and horseback riding just minutes from the city.
