Off-Leash Dog Exercise Areas
Parks & Facilities

The roadway leading to the Allegheny Observatory is closed for road reconstruction, utility work and parking lot improvements through October.  During construction, the Observatory, dog park and tennis courts are closed.

Citiparks offers several special areas where your dog can legally run without a leash. The area located in Upper Frick Park has brought enjoyment to the canine and human populations alike for more than a decade. The Allegheny Commons Park (West Commons) site is a popular gathering place for neighborhood residents and their dogs, while Riverview Park offers spacious grounds for off-leash activities in a regional park setting.

For more information on off-leash areas, please call (412) 255-2539.
