Wag! Walkers know Squirrel Hill North

Squirrel Hill North is a smaller subdivision of the Squirrel Hill neighborhood located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The neighborhood has a large Jewish population, but is also home to many university students, young professionals, and young families. The large Jewish population definitely impacts the culture of this Pittsburgh suburb as there are several synagogues, Jewish-owned kosher bakeries, bookstores, and other locally-owned businesses. Beyond businesses influenced by this unique population, you can also find other local restaurants, childcare services, convenience stores, and the campus for the prominent Carnegie Mellon University. 


Beyond local businesses and the college campus, Squirrel Hill North is largely a residential community. Standalone, single-family homes make up most of the residential spaces in this neighborhood, but there are a few apartment complexes largely geared towards local college students. 

Pittsburgh experiences all four distinct seasons. The winter months tend to bring some dreary weather with potentially icy and hazardous conditions. The summer months, however, can be a bit muggy with plenty of sunshine and heat. 

What is the terrain like in Squirrel Hill North?

Squirrel Hill North is a rather pedestrian-friendly neighborhood. You will often see many CMU students on their way to or from classes. You may even run into other local pups while out exploring this Pittsburgh neighborhood. Thankfully, this neighborhood has plenty of well-maintained sidewalks. There may be a few uneven areas, particularly on larger or steeper hills, but it should still be a relatively safe experience. Many of these sidewalks are lined with grass or are covered by large, mature trees that provide shade during the summer months. 


As mentioned, and as the name implies, Squirrel Hill North is a rather hilly neighborhood. Many of the streets have rather steep inclines which can be potentially dangerous during the icy and wet conditions of the winter months.

The boundaries of Squirrel Hill North include Fifth Avenue and Wilkins Avenue the north, Shady Avenue and South Dallas Avenue to the east, Forbes Avenue, Schenley Drive, and Frew Street to the south, and Boundary Street to the west. 

How many greenways are there in Squirrel Hill North?

There are a handful of public parks located in the Squirrel Hill North neighborhood. First, while the majority of the park is in Squirrel Hill South, a small portion of Schenley Park is located in the northern half of the neighborhood. Over 400-acres, Schenley Park is home to a golf course, playgrounds, a sports complex, several historical landmarks, a conservation and botanical gardens, and plenty of hiking for you and your pup! This park is a wonderful, natural haven in Pittsburgh’s greater urban landscape. 


Other greenways located in Squirrel Hill North are located in the residential areas. These include Wightman Park and Miracle Park. There is also a large cemetery located in the southeast corner of the neighborhood, but even leashed pups are not welcome there. 

The other largest park in Pittsburgh, Frick Park, is only a block away from Squirrel Hill North. While there are plenty of hiking avenues and other amenities in this park, the most exciting draw is the fenced-in dog park!
