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

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
