Frick Park is full of magnificent old trees, up and down trails, wildflowers, and happy dogs. People can plan a stroll on flat ground or a more ambitious hike, bike, or run on rolling trails. Last Spring we saw dogwalkers with 6 to 9 dogs enjoying the trails, behaving very well. We saw a whole family of garter snakes growing... More

Before the cold temperatures and snow fell, my wife and I went to Frick park for the first time. We loved it. Parking was free and easy. There was a Porta John at the parking lot. The walk took you through many acres of the park, over small bridges, on a very smooth path. At one point we took a... More

Nice trails through beautiful woods. We were treated to some spectacular colors in early November. The trails seemed popular with commuting school kids, families, joggers, walkers, and a few mountain bikers (the trails are wide enough to usually allow for 2 or 3 abreast).

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.

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
