What true Pittsburgher doesn’t have a special place in their heart for Kennywood? As the region’s premier park, Kennywood bills itself these days as “America’s Finest Traditional Amusement Park” – and it may very well be! Founded in 1898 as trolley park to give trolley riders a reason to use the trolley line, Kennywood (and about a dozen other such parks) featured dancing, picnicking and a few rides. Today, the park boasts 6 roller coasters and 4 water attractions among the dozens of creative rides and games throughout the park.
