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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
