We were in Pittsburgh visiting family, after days of going to the zoo and the science center and pumpkin patches, we want to find a place where our little one could just run wild. This was that place. We went to the playground on the Squirrel Hill (not Regent Square) side of the park, and she adored it. The playground... More

It is hard to believe that this wonderful park is tucked in the middle of several neighborhoods. It is a marvel of nature in the midst of the city. You feel like you have gotten far away from the city when you start down one of the winding trails. Great place to bring your family, walk your dog, catch some... More

This is a great little park. It has a blue concrete slide that comes down the side of the hill that you use cardboard with to slide down.

We visited Pittsburgh for the long weekend with my 3.5 and 2 year old. We easily could have spent half of the day on the playground alone. Tons of space in addition to the playground. The only iffy part were the bathrooms near the baseball field- definitely could have used a cleaning however better than none at all!

Being new to Pittsburgh we are still getting our feet wet in all that Pittsburgh has to offer. Today, my dog and I hit up Frick Park for some hiking. What an amazing place to get lost! And lost we did. The park is beautiful and has so many trails. People on the trails were all very friendly in helping... More

This park is located in the East End in the East Liberty/ Point Breeze neighborhood off Homewood Avenue and adjacent to the Frick Museum. Point Breeze is the kind of area that went from upper class to middle class to downright dangerous and is now turning the corner back to prosperous. Through it all, Frick Park remained a nice escape... More

We always have so much fun hiking through Frick Park. There are so many different trails to hike on, and alot of them have a decent climb as well which gets the blood flowing! I have spent time playing ball at he fields and also grew up playing in the playground back when they had an old fashioned fire truck... More

A pretty "famous" area of Frick Park is known as the blue slide park. It had an amazing blue smooth cement slide built into the hillside. It's been a favorite since my childhood and my 3 year old daughter loves it. The rest of the playground around the blue slide is pretty great too. The playground equipment is built into... More

Frick park is a phenomenal place. In the eastern part of Pittsburgh, you'll find very few people who don't already know this or will challenge such a statement. Many know it mostly for the play ground on the corner of Forbes and South Braddock avenue in the Regent Square neighborhood. There you find a melting pot of children and parents... More

This large park sits in the east end of the city and is bordered by several neighborhoods which provide a variety of entrance points. The park boasts several fields, a dog park, and miles of trails for hiking and biking. Near the Point Breeze entrance you will find the Frick Art and Historical center and lawn bowling greens, both which... More
