Dog Areas in Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh features many beautiful attractions, including 30 skyscrapers, the Fort Pitt Block House, and the Duquesne and Monongahela Inclines. The city was also highly ranked on The Economist’s list of livable locations, coming in as number one in the continental United States. It’s no surprise, then, that Pittsburgh draws in thousands of unique visitors every year.

For guests who are searching for a dog-friendly place to visit, Point State Park is the perfect spot. This park was completed in 1974 and sits at the confluence of three rivers, forming a recreational area that covers 36 acres of land. There are plenty of walkways here for some casual exercise, as well as several trails of varying lengths. The Three Rivers Heritage Trail follows the Allegheny, Monongahela, and Ohio Rivers, while the Great Allegheny Passage connects Point State Park with Cumberland, MD.

The Bernard Dog Run provides an off-leash area for city dogs to have some freedom and fun. The dog park is located beside the Lawrenceville Riverfront Trail, which means that you and your pup can spend some time exploring before stopping in to socialize. The Bernard Dog Run has separate areas for large and small dogs, as well as convenient water bowls for thirsty pups.

    #1 Bellevue

    Canines have options when it comes to fun outings in Bellevue. Riverview Dog Park offers fenced-in good times for pooches in Pittsburgh. There are separate sections for small and large dogs to keep play safe. The rest of Riverview Park is filled with walking paths that are also open to dogs as long as they are on leash. Bellevue Woods is another dog park not far away that has its own splash pad just for pups! This off-leash play area is kept very clean and works as the perfect way for Fido to beat the heat in those hot summer months. Your four-legged friend will no doubt be happy with either of these barktastic ways to spend the day.

    #2 Downtown

    The heart of Pittsburgh has some pretty great features. Both dogs and humans can have a great time sauntering around Point State Park. Take your favorite pupper to where the three rivers meet to boat watch, or head over to the fountain for tranquil sounds. The grounds are beautiful and offer lots of grass for your furry friend to roll around in. Just remember that this park is kept tidy, so always clean after your pooch and keep him leashed at all times! Exercise has never been more enjoyable than a day spent with your dog in Point State Park.

    #3 Duck Hollow

    Rails to Trails, an organization that restores abandoned train tracks into walking trails, has been very busy in Duck Hollow! The Great Allegheny Passage crosses through this neighborhood, and extends all the way to Maryland. Needless to say, there are some great sections of this trail for excursions with Rover. The Steel Valley Trail hugs the waterfront tightly and takes trekkers under the bridges of Duck Hollow. The path surface is crushed limestone, so it's not too tough for soft paw pads. Lots of bicycle riders use Steel Valley Trail, so you may want to make sure your dog is comfortable with bikes zipping by before taking them out.

    #4 Mount Washington

    Pittsburgh is home to some incredible natural landmarks! Emerald View Park takes dog walking to a whole different level, with amazing views all over the 257 acres of terrain. This area used to be a mining site, but has been converted into over ten miles of walkable trails where all leashed pups are welcome. The Three Rivers Heritage Trail System (part of the Great Allegheny Passage) is also in the Mt. Washington region. This location is a Rails to Trails conservation project, meaning it once was a railroad corridor. Now it is an easy-to-access paved path, perfect for all ages and sizes of four-legged friends.

    Squirrel Hill caters to dogs with not one, but two different off-leash dog parks! Frick Park Off-Leash Exercise Area is a great place to let your fur-baby have some fun. The park has a water fountain and containers so you don't have to worry about bringing your own water. This area also has access to a pond and a creek for lots of wet and wild play for puppers. Most of the park is not fully fenced, however the “Hot Dog Dam” section is, just in case your pooch is prone to taking off. The Lower Frick Park Off-Leash Dog Area East is not far away, and features a totally pawesome swimming hole! Just keep in mind that mutts tend to get muddy in this park, so you may want to bring a towel.
