“Unbeatable view of Pittsburgh”

The West End Overlook is a small municipal park and scenic viewpoint in the Elliot neighborhood of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. In 2003 the park was redesigned with landscaped gardens and a walkway under shade trees. Terraced stone banks provide seats for tourists. The park affords a sweeping view of the valleys of the Allegheny, Monongahela, and Ohio River as well as Downtown Pittsburgh. It's also one of the filming location of The Perks of Being a Wallflower! Many scenes were shot of Sam, Patrick and Charlie hanging out at this overlook after school.

Most underrated view of Pittsburgh. Far enough from the city that you can see stars in the sky on a clear, moonless evening! It's so great to see the rivers split the city, also! Additionally, this is THEE BEST place to view a summer sunrise in Pittsburgh, you get to watch the barges shuffle around the city as the sun rises through the buildings.
