Hartwood Acres is a former private estate that has been converted into a municipal park owned and operated by Allegheny County.
The mansion at the park’s core was originally constructed for Mary Flinn Lawrence (1887-1974), the daughter of Pittsburgh construction magnate and political leader William Flinn (1851-1924). The 31-room home is designed to echo the elements of a stately English manor house created by noted architect Alfred Hopkins (1870-1941).
Mary famously installed riding trails, show rings and ivy-covered stables to create an equestrian art showcase on the grounds. Today, the mansion and stable complex have survived along with several smaller buildings and a beautiful garden.
The park regularly hosts both public and private events while providing many enjoyable outdoor activities such as hiking and cross-country skiing.
The office is open Sunday, Noon to 4:00 p.m.; Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.; Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
On-site parking is available.
