As mentioned, there is more to this neighborhood than homes. You will also find several popular restaurants, coffee shops, and Pamela's Diner, one of the more well-known Pittsburgh breakfast places! There are also a few schools, art galleries, public parks, medical services, a large hospital, and churches throughout Shadyside.
Pittsburgh experiences all four distinct seasons. Weather can always range from hot and muggy to icy and windy, depending on the time of year.
Most of Shadyside has well-maintained sidewalks, however, some areas are a bit uneven and cracked, so watch where you are stepping. Additionally, most of the sidewalks are lined with grass and have large trees to provide shade during the hot and sunny summer days. However, like much of Pittsburgh, Shadyside has quite a few hills which contribute to some of the cracked sidewalks.
The borders of Shadyside include Center Avenue to the north, Penn Avenue to the east, Fifth Avenue to the south, and North Neville Street to the west.
Thankfully, there are a few greenways in surrounding neighborhoods that you and your pup can explore. To the north, you can find Enright Parklet, Penn Plaza Greenspace, Garland Parklet, East Liberty Town Square, East Liberty Park, and Fairfield Park.
To the south, you will find Schenley Park, one of the largest greenways in the city of Pittsburgh. This public park is home to a the Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, a golf course, a historic landmark, a sports complex, plenty of hiking trails, and a great view of the downtown area!
