I spend quite a bit of time in Pittsburgh and I visit this park often with my dog who travels with me. As much as I adore this park I was very disappointed with many people I met there today who were all dog owners. As we were taking our usual walk, keeping in mind that the park is signed... More

Had a beautiful afternoon walking the trails in Frick Park. Every other person had a dog, so we had fun watching them too! The sun was warm and the trails were well marked. Some were a little steep but all were very walkable. If I lived in Pittsburgh, I'd spend a lot of time there.

We had heard this was a nice place to walk and wanted to check it out. It is a pretty big, over 600 acres, and has some nice trails to walk of run. It was raining when we were there so we didn't explore much but did take a nice long walk. It has a nice history if you take... More

This is a wonderful, and enormous, green space for this city, rather like central Park in NYC. There is plenty to explore, or simply hike trails, or just sit in the shade.

I love coming here to relax and unwind with a book or for a nice walk in the park. I plan on visiting again soon before the weather breaks.

We happened upon the new environmental center while visiting friends in Pittsburgh ....... in fact, the day of its grand opening, and really enjoyed it. It was not completely finished, but the detail of what had been done and what was yet to be done will amaze anyone interested in the environment. I would recommend the Center for adults and... More

Before my wife and I took our sons (ages 11 & 8) to Pittsburgh last week, I Googled "Fun things to do with kids in Pittsburgh." Frick Park came up. And this looked like a fun place, particularly with its Blue Slide. Itisitisitis!! The kids loved the playground, especially the slide. I loved how my boys instantly bonded with other... More

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.
