Boyce Mayview Park is located in Upper St. Clair, not to be confused with Boyce Park in Plum. The July Trail of the Month is more than just a trail; Boyce Mayview Park is equipped with many amenities for all ages and abilities.
The park is nestled along Chartier’s Creek on the Chartier’s flood plain. The creek creates a wetlands area in the park but there are also woodlands, fields and stream valleys throughout the property.
After acquiring the 238 acres that was Mayview Farm in 1996, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania combined the farm with the 236-acre adjacent Boyce Park. Once these properties merged, the plans came to fruition and the undeveloped area became a diverse space for everyone in the community to enjoy.
Extensive hiking trails weave and wind through Boyce Mayview Park, and you can find the perfect trail for any skill level. Some trails are paved and dog friendly for walking or biking that is a little less intense. Other trails weave through the woodlands and cross small streams. These trails are not dog friendly and will present a bit more of a challenge than the paved walkways. Whatever your ability there is a trail to keep you occupied as you enjoy the outdoors, only 17 miles from downtown Pittsburgh.
You may enjoy hiking, biking, running or bird watching on the trails, but this park also boasts some serious amenities:
- Regulation Baseball Field
- The Miracle League Field
- Baseball/Softball Field
- Concession Stands
- Batting Cages
- The Outdoor Classroom
- A place to connect with the environment through hands-on learning.
- Community & Recreation Center
- Fitness Center
- Aquatics Center
