Some of the best mountain bike trails in Pittsburgh. Clay tennis courts. The only public lawn bowling green in Pennsylvania. Take that and add 151 acres of wooded nature reserve, popular childrens' playgrounds, and the Pittsburgh home of industrialist Henry Clay Frick, and you have Frick Park. The largest of the city of Pittsburgh parks, Frick Park borders the Pittsburgh neighborhoods of Point Breeze, Regent Square, and Squirrel Hill, and represents a great way to while away a weekend afternoon.
Across the street from the Reynolds Street entrance to Frick Park is the Frick Art & Historical Center, one of Pittsburgh's top cultural attractions. The Center features museums and historical buildings on more than five acres of elegant lawns and gardens, including the restored Frick family home, Clayton; the Frick Art Museum; the Car and Carriage Museum; the Greenhouse; the Visitors' Center; and the Café at the Frick. Best of all, everything is free to explore, with the exception of Clayton.
