Wag! Walkers know Squirrel Hill South

Squirrel Hill is a rather large neighborhood located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. With it being such a large neighborhood, it is typically divided and referred to as Squirrel Hill North and Squirrel Hill South. This neighborhood was originally named for the plethora of gray squirrels that call this area their home. Additionally, Squirrel Hill is one of the largest, predominately Jewish communities in the United States. Along with that large community, there are plenty of Jewish-owned businesses like bakeries and stores, synagogues, nonprofits, and community centers in this neighborhood.聽聽


The largest of the two, Squirrel Hill South, is largely residential, however, there are a few commercial streets and several prominent greenways in the neighborhood. Murray Avenue is home to many of the commercial businesses with everything from grocery stores, locally-owned restaurants and cafes, theaters, and convenience stores. Squirrel Hill is also home to Carnegie Mellon University and Chatham University.


Residentially, Squirrel Hill South is largely composed of standalone, single-family homes and a few smaller apartment complexes.聽

Squirrel Hill South should be incredibly dog-friendly, with the exception of some of the larger hills in the neighborhood!

Due to the hilly nature of the neighborhood, some sidewalks can be a bit uneven, but they are well-maintained overall.聽However, as the name implies, Squirrel Hill South is an incredibly hilly neighborhood and the hills are made even more difficult during the winter months as Pittsburgh gets quite a bit of snow and icy conditions.

The boundaries of Squirrel Hill South are Forbes Avenue to the north, Fern Hollow Creek and Nine Mile Run to the east, the Monongahela River and Penn-Lincoln Parkway to the south, and Browns Hill Road, Saline Street, and Junction Hollow Trail to the west.聽
