Hartwood Acres Park
Allegheny County Park consisting of 629 acres. Preserved within the park is one of the largest and most spectacular country estates in the region. Hartwood consists of a stately Tudor Mansion (erected in 1929) cottage, stable complex and gate lodge (erected in 1927). Designed by Alfred Hopkins for John and Mary Flinn Lawrence, the mansion houses an excellent collection of original English and American antiques. Its 16th century architectural design affords both young and old opportunity to glimpse into a part of Pittsburgh's past.
Not surprisingly, a large part of Hartwood Acre's charm lies in its scenic setting. Reflect upon a time of elegance and style while strolling through the formal gardens.
Hike or horseback along its wooded trails or cross country ski depending on the season. Visit the farm and stable complex, appreciate the sculptures or see a concert under the stars.
We took a holiday tour of the mansion and loved it. The staff were all super friendly and very knowledgeable. I will have to come back soon and visit the park area.
Great trails and there aren't a thousand people getting in your way. Plenty of parking is available and the park is dog friendly. I would recommend if you're looking to get out into the woods for an hour or two. Otherwise this park may be too small for you.
Went to looking around. I did call ahead but there was no answer. I thought I would drive that way and see what it was all about. I rung the doorbell because it was there. The lady that answered was rude. She did inform me they were booked through the weekend. I did eventually get a call back from them several hours later.
Well maintained park. I usually stick to the off leash dog park. Dog cleanup bags, port o pottys, and garbage containers provided. Water in off leash areas during warm seasons.
Hardwood acres is a very nice park with many features. There us a outdoor concert area. I have attended many of the free sunday concerts. They have nice walking and mt bike trails. As well as a great place to meet a photographer for family photo shoot.
