Every Thursday from now until Labor day the MF education department will set up shop in West Park near Lake Elizabeth (we like to call her Lake Liz) on the Northside. We’ll offer a different hands-on activity related to the outdoors and art each week! We’re excited to partner with Venture Outdoors and Kayak Pittsburgh for this, our 2nd year – providing free weekly programs for all ages!
MFers hanging out making art at Lake Liz
Located in the city’s oldest park, Allegheny Commons/West Park, Lake Elizabeth is perfect for families, beginning kayakers, or anyone nervous about getting out on the river. Just 3 feet deep, this shallow lake offers great views of the downtown skyline in a controlled environment. Allegheny Commons is located on Pittsburgh’s North Side near the National Aviary and only a few blocks from the Mattress Factory.
Kayak Pittsburgh lets you poke around the lake
When: Every Thursday (June 2 - September 1, 2011), 4-6pm Where: At Lake Elizabeth Who: You, Mattress Factory, and Kayak Pittsburgh Cost: FREE ($5 per kayak on weekends)
