The PNC Carousel carries on an historic tradition of carousels in Pittsburgh parks
The original Schenley Park Carousel was opened to the public at the corner of Panther Hollow and Greenfield roads in 1913. Both today's carousel and the original showcased a menagerie of animals that symbolize the fellowship and diversity of Pittsburgh.
Erected in 2006, this Victorian-style carousel was built by American craftsmen and generously funded by the PNC Financial Services Group. The PNC Carousel is Schenley Plaza’s feature family attraction. Visitors of all ages and abilities can enjoy its lively colors and old-fashioned pipe organ music.
