Beautiful Park in the Heart of the City.

I am so very fortunate to live a block from the entrance of this park. It's perfect for solo walkers, bikers, hikers as well as families and groups. There's a fenced in stream... read more

I am so very fortunate to live a block from the entrance of this park. It's perfect for solo walkers, bikers, hikers as well as families and groups. There's a fenced in stream called 'Hot Dog Dam' for dogs to cool off and splash about with their furry pals. Lots of climbing and exploring can lead you to various parts... More

What a beautiful spot! This is a nice place to run or just walk around. There are lots of beautiful plants and trees, and lovely water to walk along. This is a nice place for a picnic, too!

Really, its just awesome. Packed enough to run with a jogger stroller (just dont go down the steps :-), but you feel like it's a "hike" since there aren't paved roads. It really just beautiful. Perfect place to bring dogs, kids, or fat people that you want to make skinny :-)

The park is VERY large. The walking trails are looped to provide long or short walks. The trees are huge and there is a stream that runs through it. Hills and valleys and wide open places make you feel like you are far from the city. You cannot hear any traffic noises at all because of the secluded atmosphere. It... More

Frick Park is huge. You could get lost in here. And that would be perfectly fine (unless it's nighttime and you're alone... safety first!). It's big enough to get in a nice workout and the hills make it a great way to sweat. Dodging the other runners and the multitude of dogs, you get it all: open grassy park space,... More

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
