'No Hunting' Signs Go Up in Frick Park

PITTSBURGH, PA (November 10, 2020) -- Pittsburgh Public Safety and Pittsburgh Park Rangers would like to inform visitors to Frick Park that ' Posted - No Hunting' signs have recently been erected at several key points on the property.

A jewel in the City, Frick Park receives hundreds of visitors to its more than 600 acres each day.

At this time of year, while deer and other wildlife are highly visible, it is imperative that visitors be able to use the park safely.

"There are numerous children, bicyclists, pedestrians and pets within the parks and hunting of any kind could lead to tragic results. The Departments of Public Safety and Parks and Recreation will enforce the City ordinance in an effort to protect park visitors," said Public Safety Director Wendell Hissrich.

Interfering with wildlife in City parks is strictly prohibited. This includes hunting, trapping, feeding, and/or harvesting.

Pittsburgh Park Rangers have jurisdiction over all Pittsburgh Parks and are actively present in all five regional parks including Emerald View, Frick, Highland, Riverview, and Schenley Parks.
