Want to get into shape without buying a gym membership? Pittsburgh community center facilities are free for all residents. The Citiparks/West Penn Community Center has a full weight room (with an amazing view) and a room of exercise machines including a treadmill, stationary bikes, and a stair climber. There’s a basketball court, a senior center and a ceramics group on Thursdays. In the summer, West Penn Pool is open. Other classes and programs are ongoing.
