“Nice walk...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Love going here for the Christmas Lights when they used to have it. But it's still just as nice in the spring/summer time. Walking path is very nice and well maintained. Haven't done a tour of the Mansion in years but what I remember it was really nice.

“Classy suburban park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

In my youth and young adult hood I spent many hours riding my horses through Hartwood Acres and often visited the stables, which back then housed beautiful show horses. It was still known as "The Lawrence Estate" back then, the main house is buitl with materiels imported form England, there is a beautiful gate house and the stable and attached house are just from a fairy tale. Allegheny County bought the place in 1970. Horses still use the bridle trails, as do dog walkers and hikers, and there is a spacious fenced in dog area and plenty of more rugged trails to get away one's own. I love walking my dogs here nowadays. It is a great park

“Great place for the family”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

We go there every summer for the concerts and always enjoy ourselves. The Christmas lights are worth a trip too. We still haven't visited the mansion but hope to do so one day.

“Difficult to find, but a very good venue for concerts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

My wife was born in Pitt and has lived there for over 40 years. It may be because she is a south hills girl, but finding this place is a challenge. There is only a very small sign where you turn off route 8 to head toward Hartwood. Once there, you will find a very large lawn that forms an amphitheater. The setting is very nice. Bring a lawn chair, blanket and enjoy.
