Pittsburgh itself is one of the larger cities in the states. It is known as the Steel City, the City of Bridges, the 'Burgh, or the City of Champions. There are a variety of things to do, including seeing the professional football, hockey or baseball teams play, visiting one of the many history, science or art museums, seeing a live performance in the Cultural District, or exploring the city's popular and large public parks.
However, like many major metropolises, Point Breeze has plenty of sidewalks for you and your pup to use. You should never have to share the roadways with vehicle traffic in this neighborhood. However, unlike many urban environments, Point Breeze has plenty of large, mature trees which can provide excellent shade during sunny, summer months.
The boundaries of Point Breeze include Penn Avenue and Fifth Avenue to the north, Peebles Street to the east, Forbes Avenue and Wilkins Avenue to the south, and South Dallas Avenue and Shady Avenue to the west.
However, immediately to the east of Homewood Cemetery, you will find a small offshoot of the largest public park in Pittsburgh, Frick Park, which connects to a larger 644-acre park! This particular area of Frick Park has a small creek, plenty of walking trails, and bowling greens. While not located directly in the neighborhood, the larger area of Frick Park has some sporting facilities, an environmental center, playgrounds, and a dog park! The off-leash area is located centrally and provides water fountains and bowls for your pups to hydrate and enjoy.
Smaller greenways in Point Breeze include Sterrett Park, Conover Park Corner, Lyndhurst Green, and Mellon Park Rose Garden.
