South Park is not far from downtown Pittsburgh, but it seems worlds away. Hiking trails, golf course, playgrounds, a dog park, music venue, and lots of family restaurants just outside of the park. Put on your tennis shoes and go there!

Many mikes of flat paths for biking and running. Many different swing sets and climbing structures for little ones. A dog park for Fido. A duck pond with abundant fowl and after feeding the mallards and Canadian geese, along came the wild turkey. There is a mini "zoo" with peacocks and buffalo. Horseback riding, wave pool, mini golf, ice skating,... More

South Park is a great place to go to if you want an active weekend. My favorite park is the game reserve. You can feed the geese and ducks at the the duck pond, and you can also see some buffalo! I have to say, the water in the duck pond looks grey and poorly taken care of, almost like... More

There's a lot I can say for the neighborhood I grew up in. South Park has undergone many changes since my childhood. Once home of the Allegheny County Fair, the fairground still exists and is in the process of transformation. It has a stable for horseback riding as well as pony rides for children, the buffalo trail is still there,... More

I am SO glad the buffalo are still in South Park! I've lived in California for many years, but I have such fond memories of visiting the buffalo - regularly! - over fifty years ago! Cheers to Allegheny County for keeping the herd!!!

This is a good go-to for lazy days when you need your kids to run off some steam. We usually go to the park in the morning or after dinner (both times during the week). It's not too crowded and the oldest kids I've ever seen there couldn't have been more than 10 years old. The main structure has a... More

very nice park. It has a wave swimming my pool in the summer and an outdoor ice skating rink in the winter. Miles of walking paths. Come see the herd of buffalo and the peacocks. You can feed the ducks at the nature preserve. At here are free summer concerts on Friday nights in the summer.

Great park for outdoor running, you can pick - run up and down the main paved road; or head off into trails that run through out the park. Every part of the park seems to have high foot track, so you will never feel alone on the trail. There's even a duck heaven pond area that's fun to check out... More

Nice spot to run or walk. My husband is from Pittsburgh, and this is where he always likes to go run when we come visit. There are several miles of trails, which is really nice when you want to be able to change it up.
