About Our Parks

Blue Arrow Parks Department Website 

Allegheny County operates nine public parks that offer a wide array of sporting, leisure, cultural and entertainment opportunities. The County Parks system, which covers nearly 12,000 acres, serves to enhance the quality of life for the citizens of Allegheny County and Southwestern Pennsylvania. The County Parks system is recognized as one of our residents' most favorite places.

Various seasonal and year-long programs, activities and amenities provide residents with educational and recreational experiences, including: swimming pools; wave pools; boat rentals; golf courses; nature trails; ski slopes; BMX bike track; skate board, roller blade and bike park; bridle trails; ice skating rinks; tennis courts; and numerous shelters, groves and pavilions.

Each summer, the Parks Department offers a free concert series at Hartwood Acres and South Park. Each winter, Hartwood Acres hosts the Celebration of Lights, a three-mile display consisting of more than three million holiday lights.
