“Worth the visit if you are in Pittsburgh.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

My wife and I recently went to Pittsburgh for the NCAA Frozen Four. We had a chance to visit South Park and some of the other parks in the area. Our main concern was to do some off pavement running and South Park was filling those needs. They are developing a great network of trails, which should hold up to all kinds of weather conditions. Checked out the buffalo and some of the other attractions within the Park. Should be a great place during the hot summer with plenty of shade and varied terrain for both running and mountain biking.

“Family friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

The park has some very nice walking paths. Most are on well maintained, paved paths. However, you can find some dirt paths if you want to get off the main paths. There some nice picnic areas. Others need some work. There are basketball courts,and deck hockey areas. There are 2 children playgrounds; the older one needs some updating. The game preserve needs a lot of work. Many of the Fairground buildings need torn down or renovated. The oval in the Fairground area is undergoing improvements this year (2013).

“Nice place to take the kids - a great county park!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

There is alot to offer in South Park. Besides a walking paths, a dog park, and various playgrounds for kids, outdoor ice rink, outdoor dek hockey rink, tennis courts, BMX bike track, and an animal preserve where you can look at the buffalo, there are numerous activites and festivals throughout the year to partipate in. In October we took the kids to the Oliver Miller Homestead (right off the center circle on Corrigan Drive) during the Children's Harvest Festival. The kids loved the activities at the event where the kids could do things that children from the 1700s did and see how people lived back then. We also went to the Demonstration Garden festival in September and sampled local fruits, vegetables, and baked goods and learned about green farming, etc. It's a great county park.

“Skating Rink”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

The South Park Ice Skating Rink has been a gathering place for kids and adults alike for many years. It's so nice to see the faces of the kids learning how to skate. The rink is outdoors and they have a wonderful fireplace inside. It's a great place to take your kids on the weekends.
