Wag! Walkers know South Side Slopes

South Side Slopes is a popular residential neighborhood just south of downtown Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Historically, this neighborhood was home to many of the immigrants and local workers that worked in the nearby steel mills or glass-blowing factories. Now, across the Monongahela River and at the base of Mt. Washington, this neighborhood is home to college students, young professionals, Pittsburgh locals, and a few younger families. The residential spaces are largely standalone, single-family homes. Some have been converted into multi-apartment spaces and a few recently renovated apartment or condo complexes.聽

There are essentially no commercial spaces in the neighborhood, with the exception of a stray gas station or convenience store, so residents will need to venture into surrounding neighborhoods to find both necessities and amenities.聽

Pittsburgh, also known as the City of Bridges, the City of Champions, Steel City, or, simply, the 'Burgh, hosts several professional sports teams, renowned colleges and universities, and a thriving cultural district with several theaters, complete with their own opera and ballet troupe!

What is the terrain like in South Side Slopes?

Walking through South Side Slopes is not for the faint of heart as there are some seriously steep hills. Some hills are so steep that the sidewalk has actually been converted into a staircase! Fun fact: Pittsburgh is also affectionately called the City of Stairs, as it has one of the highest number of public staircases throughout the city! You should always exercise caution while out walking, but particularly during the winter months when roads, sidewalks, and stairs can get rather icy and congested with snow.聽


Beyond the rather steep inclines, South Side Slopes has extremely narrow streets and sidewalks, much like many of the Pittsburgh suburbs. This means you will always be in close proximity to moving vehicles and other pedestrians.聽

Finally, beyond the public parks located in the neighborhood, there are very few trees or patches of grass, so it may be difficult for you and your pup to find a place for a quick pit stop.聽

How many greenways are there in South Side Slopes?

While the residential areas have very few trees and almost no grass, there are, thankfully, quite a few public parks in the South Side Slopes neighborhood. The largest greenway is a combination of Quarry Field, South Side Park, and the聽Bandi Schaum Community Garden. Centrally located in the neighborhood, this greenway is a perfect place for you and your pup to explore, as there are several walking trails and fields for general recreation.聽


Another spacious greenway, Monongahela Park, is a large field where local sporting leagues play games. This is a great option for you and your pup to explore during the daytime and, at night, there may be excellent people-watching during various games as long as your pup doesn't try to chase the official game ball!

Other local greenways include Cobden Street Park, Eleanor Street Park, Arlington Field, Winters Playground, Winters Park, Monastery Street Park, and Knoxville Incline Overlook Park. There is also a large cemetary in the neighborhood, but pups are generally not welcomed.聽
