The Strip District is a large neighborhood located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Pittsburgh, known as the City of Bridges or the Steel City, is one of the largest cities in the state of Pennsylvania. It is well-known for its professional sports teams, plenty of museums like the Andy Warhol Museum or the Carnegie Museum of Art, unique neighborhoods, and delicious food inspired by Polish and German immigrants. 

The Strip District was originally an industrial neighborhood in the downtown Pittsburgh area. There are plenty of warehouses and access to the Allegheny River. Today, however, many of these warehouses have been transformed into local restaurants, stores, bars, and a few attractions like the Senator John Heinz History Center. The Strip District is also known for its lavish Polish cathedrals, some of which have been converted into restaurants and breweries. Additionally, some warehouses have been reimagined into apartments or lofts.

Pittsburgh is known for being a hilly city, but the Strip District is relatively flat compared to the rest of the city. Besides some extremely gradual, rolling hills, you should not experience too many steep hills that are strenuous to walk. 


The Strip District, as one of the original industrial neighborhoods in the city, is largely artificial terrain. Even with the Allegheny River as a border of the neighborhood, there is very little river access in the Strip District. Thankfully, there are plenty of wide sidewalks and stores with water bowls out for pups to help make this neighborhood super dog-friendly!

The boundaries of the Strip District include the Allegheny River to the northwest, 33rd Street to the northeast, Liberty Avenue and Bigelow Boulevard to the southeast,  and 11th Street to the southwest. Smallman Street and Penn Avenue are the two major roadways that cut through the Strip District.

For a traditionally industrial neighborhood, there are a few greenways throughout the Strip District. First, the Three Rivers Heritage Trail runs along the Allegheny River and through the Strip District. This 24-mile trail is incredibly pup-friendly and is a perfect place to go walking! 


The Frank Curto Park is located on the southeast border of the neighborhood and this small greenway is home to several art installations for visitors to enjoy along with a paved walking trail. Smaller greenways in the Strip District include the Cork Factory Lawn and Denny Park. Nearby greenways include Arsenal Park, the Garden of Hope, Bedford Reservoir Parklet, August Wilson Park, and Crosstown Park. 

Thankfully, there are two public dog parks near the Strip District. To the south, you will find the Downtown Dog Park and, to the north, you will find the Bernard Dog Run. These off-leash areas are perfect for you and your furry friend, especially if they have some extra energy to run off.
