Residentially, this neighborhood is predominantly composed of standalone, single-family homes, but there are a few smaller apartment complexes in the area too.
Pittsburgh itself is a thriving city with its historical roots in the steel and glass blowing industry. Today, Pittsburgh is home to popular professional sports teams, a variety of art, history, and science museums, several local breweries, a popular cultural district, nightlife options, and a growing food scene.
Like many of Pittsburgh's suburban neighborhoods, Greenfield is a rather hilly place. Many of the streets are steep and steady inclines, which can help increase the workout that both you and your pup get everyday. Always be careful during the winter and early spring as icy and hazardous conditions are quite common and can make these steep hills quite difficult and potentially dangerous to manage.
The boundaries of Greenfield include Penn-Lincoln Parkway to the north, Saline Street and Beechwood Boulevard to the east, Bigelow Street to the south, and Greenfield Avenue to the west.
The small Greenfield park is Four Mile Run Park. This is an incredibly small greenway, but it is home to the Four Mile Run Park which connects to the larger Frick Park to the north. Frick Park, one of the largest in Pittsburgh, is immediately north of Greenfield and is home to miles of hiking, playgrounds, an environmental center, and a small, fenced-in dog park!
To the southwest of the neighborhood, you will find Bud Hammer Field, a mid-sized greenway with plenty of sports facilities and a small playground for local children.
