There are a few businesses in the region, including a few local restaurants, a school, a church, and the famous Duquesne Incline. The Incline was originally a coal hoist and it has been operating since the 1850s! However, it has since been converted into a passenger incline that is frequently used by commuters heading into the city.
On top of the different hills, only some of the streets in the Duquesne Heights neighborhood have sidewalks for you and your pup to use. Many of the main streets do, but smaller streets in the residential areas do not. No matter where you are, exercise caution, make sure you have control of your pup, and watch out for traffic and other pedestrians.
However, much of the neighborhood is composed of a larger greenway: Emerald View Park. Formally known as the Grand View Scenic Byway Park, this public park is 280 acres and also has panoramic views of the downtown area. Additionally, this large park has plenty of connected walking trails to explore.
