North Park, the largest in Allegheny County, beckons you with its expansive grassy lawns perfect for a picnic, as well as a few unhurried hours strolling around a wooded lake shore. Stop at the Latodami Nature Center, housed in a circa-1914 dairy barn, and immerse yourself in the hum of honeybees buzzing around their hives, see butterflies flitting from flower to flower, and look out for elusive deer and barn owls hiding in the pines. Nearby wetlands become noticeably clammy when it's cool and muggy when it's warm, revealing croaking bull frogs and mud-sunken salamanders. You just need to take time to be still and turn a keen eye toward its marshy crannies.
