Situated across the Parkway East from Regent Square, Swisshelm Park is often mistaken for a suburban neighborhood.
Swisshelm Park is full of suburban-style ranch and two-story brick homes. It is also a tightly knit, family-oriented community. Its residents are active in its many recreational and youth programs.
This outdoorsy, pet-friendly neighborhood provides a scenic relaxed atmosphere adjacent to Frick Park. Recreational facilities such as the Sarah Jackson Black Community Center and Swisshelm Park Parklet appeal to many in the neighborhood.
Convenient shopping opportunities are nearby in the Squirrel Hill shopping district and Edgewood Town Center.
