Riverview Trail at Frick Park starts in upper Frick Park. Parking is available on the street, though on nice summer days, parking can be challenging in this area. The Blue Slide Playground is a wonderful place for kids with a long history, read more here.


If you choose this walk, bring a picnic blanket and some snacks. The open meadows on this walk will tempt the user to sit and stair at the clouds for while. There are ample benches along the walk, which is paved most of the way. When you enter the forested area of the walk, the path turns to gravel, use more caution here. Port-a-Potties are all season and the only bathrooms available on this walk. You are in the heart of Squirrel Hill and will find some small businesses nearby that may let you use their restrooms if it is an emergency. Enjoy this loop or, if you have challenges walking on gravel, make it a down and back on the paved path. Either way, this walk is a crowd pleaser!
