The trails are prettiest in fall for leaves and in spring for wildflowers. In winter, the park can be a wonderland in the middle of the city, and is popular with local cross-country skiers when there is sufficient snow cover. Frick Park is the largest of Pittsburgh’s four major parks, boasting 600 acres of woodlands and approximately 10 miles of trails. The park originated with millionaire industrialist Henry Clay Frick. In 1908 he presented the 150-acre gift to his 17-year-old daughter, Helen, who had requested a park in which the city’s children could play. The park was bequeathed to the city in 1919 along with a $2 million trust fund, which has been used to purchase additional land and maintain the park.
