      At over 3,000 acres, North Park is Allegheny County Parks' largest park. The park includes a wide range of recreational amenities, including a 75 acre fishing lake, saking rink, pool, nature center, off-leash dog park, 18 hole golf course and the Latodami Environmental Education Center. North Park was established in 1927. Its development via the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) was an important source of local employment during the Great Depression. Visitors today would be surprised to know that buffalo were kept on the site during the early 1930s. Today, North Park is home to a variety of wildlife, including the Southern Flying Squirrel, Coyote, Mink and Gray Fox.

      North Park has an abundance of trails, although they are not always easy to link up. There are over 40 miles of single-track, multi-use trails. Popular trails include:

      -Pool Loop and Devils Elbow (white blazed trails, park by Pool)
      -Kotobuki (purple with black dot blazed trails, park by Pool
      -Golf Course Front and Back Nine and V8 (green blazed trails, park at JC Stone Field)
      -North Ridge Rainbow and Pfundstein Trail (red with blue dot blazed trails, park by Boathouse)
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
      Land Status: County Park
      Land Manager: Allegheny County Parks
