This sprawling 644 acre green space is truly a marvel, a bit of "wilderness" in the midst of the city, with a stream running through it, miles of trails for hiking, biking or cross country skiing, clay tennis courts, soccer fields, an off-leash dog park, playgrounds and wetlands full of wildlife (including over 100 species of birds) and a recently...

I love taking my dog to Frick Park. There are so many trails that it's easy to get lost, but I always find my way back. It feels like you're in the middle of nowhere even though you're close to the city. Beautiful place.

We love Frick Park and it greatly enhances the quality of our life. We live within 2 blocks of the park, have 2 dogs and walk twice a day in the park. The park varies from children's play grounds to (semi) manicured fields to playing fields. However, the most acreage is wooded with trails throughout. Terrain ranges from level to... More

Don't get me wrong, Frick Park has a lot of visitors, but it really is underrated as a community asset. It is large enough, with enough varied terrain so that it really seems like a number of different parks and you can select what you want to see and do based on where you enter, from the boardwalk over 9...

It's a wonderful place for a casual stroll or a vigorous hike. You will see lots of people but it doesn't feel crowded and there are plenty of places to go for quiet reflection.

Stopped here to walk our three dogs before setting off to NY. you have a choice of many different trails of varying degrees of difficulty and length. There were a lot of people with dogs, which must stay on the leash.

Beautiful park in an urban setting, with many trails for walking and running. Beautiful and tranquil, this is an oasis of green in an industrial city. Just taking time to walk it, will recharge your batteries. It is one of the nicest parks in the city of Pittsburgh.

Frick Park is a vast wooded area extending a couple of miles along a ravine between the Squirrel Hill and Regent Square neighborhoods. For children, there are two nice playgrounds, one at Forbes and Braddock and one at Beechwood Blvd and Nicholson. The latter is known as Blue Slide Park. Take some waxed paper for extra fast trips down the... More
