Frick Park is the largest of the city's four parks, covering 600 acres. The park began when industrialist Henry Clay Frick, upon his death in 1919, bequeathed 150 acres south of his Point Breeze mansion, Clayton. He also arranged for a $2 million trust fund for long-term maintenance for the park, which opened in 1927. The park was enlarged from Point Breeze into Squirrel Hill to the border of Edgewood. Today, park users love the extensive trails throughout the park's steep valleys and wooded slopes that are ideal for hikes. Park amenities include the Frick Art + Historical Center, educational programming by the Frick Environmental Center, Blue Slide Playground, Playground at at Forbes and Braddock, the Frick Gatehouse, red clay tennis courts and a bowling green.
