The Frick Environmental Center is a world-class, sustainable building that is free and open to all.

The Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy, in partnership with the City of Pittsburgh, opened the new Frick Environmental Center to the public in September 2016. Working in close collaboration with the City, the Parks Conservancy manages and operates the Center and the surrounding 115 acres of the Frick Nature Reserve portion of Frick Park.

Engineered to meet the Living Building Challenge and achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum certification, the Frick Environmental Center is a state-of-the-art facility that is free and open to all.
