Free (and almost free) Family Fun in Pittsburgh
Kids and parents want to have fun exploring their world and taking time off from weekly stress, but it can be difficult when we are on a tight budget. Here is a list of a few things in and round Pittsburgh that can be enjoyed for free (or nearly free) every month! Now get out there and play!
Open Streets Brentwood
“Get Off Your Seats and Hit the Streets”
Brownsville Road, Allegheny County
(Between Brentwood Park and Brentwood
Town Center along Brownsville Road)
The first “suburban” Open Streets in Pittsburgh
will be held on Saturday, October 17th, 2015 from 9 AM to 1 PM, in Brentwood.
Over a mile of Brownsville Road will be closed down and transformed into an open space for recreational activities for participants to explore by walking, biking, running, skating, exercising, dancing, shopping, as well as children’s activities, socializing, and much, much more.
The streets will never be the same – don’t miss this exciting opportunity to take back the streets! It’s free and pedestrians of all ages are encouraged to participate in activities.
