Frick Park (map, park map)


Upon Henry Clay Frick’s death in 1919, the 151 acres south of his mansion, the Clayton, were donated to the city of Pittsburgh together with a $2 million trust fund for maintenance for the park.  Over time, the City of Pittsburgh has purchased and annexed adjacent lands and nowadays the park encompasses 644 acres, which makes it Pittsburgh’s largest municipal park.

The last photo shows the “Blue Slide playground”, which was ,ade popular by Pittsburgh rapper Mac Miller when he named his 2011 album “Blue Slide Park”.
