Gilfillan Park

gilfillan-park

Gilfillan Park is 59.57 acres of farm and woodlands, including a 1.25-mile mulched walking trail along Rt. 19 and Orr Road.

In 1976 Upper St. Clair purchased nearly 60 acres of land from the Gilfillan Family to be used as a park. A Nature Trail, used also for walking, hiking, jogging and cross-country skiing, was later established around this property.

The trail winds through woodlands of native trees such as white ash, American beech and sassafras, some of which are estimated to be over 400 years old.

Over 20 different species are marked and identified along the Trail and in the "Gilfillan Trail: Tree Identification Guide" which is available at the Township's Department of Recreation and Leisure Services.

The park surrounds the adjacent 15-acre Gilfillan Farm which was left to the  Historical Society of Upper St. Clair in 2001 in the will of Margaret Gilfillan.
