Wag! Walkers know Highland Park

Pittsburgh is known for its hilly neighborhoods, often with sweeping views of the downtown area, large and spacious public parks, and its unique "yinzer" dialect. The Highland Park neighborhood is not an exception! Located six miles northeast of the downtown area, Highland Park is a large residential community combined with a public park of the same name. 


Residentially, this neighborhood is composed of mid to large-sized, standalone, single-family homes, with a few apartment buildings. Commercially, Highland Park has plenty of local restaurants and coffee shops, churches, a school, the local fire training academy, a hotel, and several breweries. Also in this neighborhood is Highland Park itself, a large public park that is also home to the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium. 


Outside of Highland Park, Pittsburgh continues to grow with several prominent universities, three professional sports teams, access to hiking, a local food scene, plenty of local micro-breweries, and a thriving cultural district with several performing arts venues. 

What is the terrain like in Highland Park?

With a great balance of urban communities and a large public park, Highland Park is a great neighborhood to walk around with your pup! First, in the residential side of the community, Highland Park has well-maintained sidewalks that are often shaded by large, mature trees. In the public park, there are plenty of paved paths for you to explore; some that even loop around some small lakes. 

The only downside to this neighborhood are all the hills! Just like most Pittsburgh suburbs, Highland Park has rather steep streets which can only get more dangerous or slippery during inclement weather. 

The boundaries of Highland Park include the Allegheny River to the north, Washington Boulevard to the east, Negley Run Boulevard, Stanton Avenue, and Meadow Street to the south,  and Heths Avenue and the Highland Park border to the west. Bryant Avenue, located centrally in Highland Park, is home to many of the local businesses, and thus, may have a heavier traffic than the surrounding areas. 

How many greenways are there in Highland Park?

Unlike many urban neighborhoods, half of Highland Park is a public park! Highland Park, the greenway, was originally created to house the local reservoir which can still be seen today. Over 375 acres, this public park is now home to several shelters and picnicking areas, a lake for fishing, sand volleyball courts, playgrounds, bocce courts, other sports facilities, a bike track, a public pool, and at least four miles of trails to run, walk, or bike! Much of this park is also part of the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium, one of six combined zoo and aquarium facilities in the country. Probably of more interest to you, however, is the off-leash area for pups! Located in the northeast part of Highland Park, the off-leash area is located off Lake Drive. 


Beyond this large greenway, the neighborhood is also home to Flynn Parklet, Mellon Terrace Park, King Estate, and Heths Run Greenspace. While there are other greenways within walking distance, Highland Park should have everything you and your pup need!
