ABOUT REGENT SQUARE
Regent Square is a tree-lined neighborhood on the eastern edge of the City of Pittsburgh.
Situated along both sides of Braddock Avenue between the Parkway East and Forbes Avenue, the neighborhood is composed of portions of the municipalities of Edgewood, Pittsburgh, Swissvale, and Wilkinsburg. The neighborhood is home to unique restaurants, convenient shopping, an indie movie theatre, centers for learning, art galleries, and so much more.
Scenic Frick Park borders the western edge defining the unique physical character of the neighborhood and creating its strong sense of place. - RSCA.org
The largest of Pittsburgh’s regional parks at 561 acres, Frick Park is also the youngest. The park officially opened in 1927. Most recently, 106 acres were annexed to the park as part of the process that created the Summerset at Frick Park housing development and restored the Nine Mile Run stream valley. Frick Park stretches from Point Breeze to the Monongahela River. Known for its extensive trails throughout steep valleys and wooded slopes, Frick Park is an ideal escape from the noise of the city. Birding enthusiasts love to visit Clayton Hill, where over 100 species of birds have been recorded.
Children flock to the famous Blue Slide Playground and learn about nature at the Frick Environmental Center. Frick Park's variety of trails makes it a popular destination for mountain bikers. The park also features red clay tennis courts, baseball fields, and the only public lawn bowling green in Pennsylvania. Future plans include building a new Environmental Center at Frick Park.
Dogs are welcome in all areas of the park on a leash. The popular Off-Leash Exercise Area in Frick Park is located about a half mile past the Blue Slide playground on Riverview Trail.
