Pittsburgh's tender mercies, respect for its lands, and loyalty to high ideals are more than evident within the gates of Allegheny Cemetery. Conceived in the minds of Pittsburgh's leading families and businessmen in 1844, Allegheny Cemetery was created to be far more than the typical country burying grounds of that age.For travelers who use our international travel planner, Pittsburgh holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Allegheny Cemetery and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
Today, Allegheny Cemetery encompasses 300 acres with over 15 miles of roadways and has been the choice of more than 133,000 people as their final resting place. Some had worldwide fame, others were known throughout Pittsburgh. But most were known only by the friends and family who loved them and wanted the assurance that they would be memorialized in the most caring, dignified, and respectful manner possible. Together, they make up the Allegheny Cemetery family.

This cemetery is a celebration of life! I go running here in the evenings and there are so many paths and trails and interesting things to see. People bike, run, walk, and learn to drive here. There is tons of activity at any time of day. There are entire sections of the park where you can't see anything but rolling hills and trees all around you. It's hard to believe it's in the middle of the city.
The cemetery is one if the closest green spaces to the Garfield, Bloomfield, Lawrenceville, friendship area. While it is a cemetery it is often used by folks including myself as a green space. There are parts of the grass that there are no grave stones and the wooded area that is great for traversing and exploring The area is well kept, with a thorough grounds crew. This also used to be. Great place for sledding, though only well after hours. Sadly this is no longer the case and there is a crew that seems to monitor the area late into the night. Running, biking and exploring is still great. A hike in the woods, a sit by the ponds or water fountains, this is one of my favorite green spaces in Pittsburgh.
