the gps was a little off when finding it. But it was an okay place. It could have been kept a little better.

There are many urban parks in Pittsburgh, but this is one of the best, lesser travelled ones. Good for dog walking, has a small meadow for off leash. This is an urban blighted area returned back to its natural beauty. The flowering dogwood trees were spectacular.

I've been coming here since I was a kid. Brought my own kids here and will bring my grandson when he comes to visit. Always a thrill!

Very peaceful and clean. Lots of trails to wander around! We (my pup & I) finally found the doggie park (fenced in for no leash play) and he wanted to continue walking, had no interest in the fenced area. 😉. Just beautiful!

We spent 45 minutes there and couldn't get the kids away from the Blue Slide! Bring cardboard to make the trips down a bit faster. The Blue Slide park is located at Beechwood Blvd & Nicholson St., the GPS listed Frick Park, but took us to another section of the park, which is over 600 acres. There were other things... More

Amazing to have such a large park, in the middle of a big city. Extensive walking trails. Some are flat and some are hilly, so there is something for everybody!

This sprawling 644 acre green space is truly a marvel, a bit of "wilderness" in the midst of the city, with a stream running through it, miles of trails for hiking, biking or cross country skiing, clay tennis courts, soccer fields, an off-leash dog park, playgrounds and wetlands full of wildlife (including over 100 species of birds) and a recently...
