Scenic Frick Park borders the western edge defining the unique physical character of the neighborhood and creating its strong sense of place.

    RSCA's Mission:

    The Regent Square Civic Association (RSCA) serves all the residents, businesses, and property owners in Regent Square, a neighborhood comprised of sections of four municipalities: Edgewood, Pittsburgh, Swissvale and Wilkinsburg.
              It is our goal to maintain a sense of community and continuously improve the quality of life in our neighborhood. The RSCA acts as a liaison to government agencies, organizes community events, initiates neighborhood improvements, collaborates with other community organizations, disseminates information to the community, and operates as an advocate on community-wide issues.
              The RSCA is a not-for-profit volunteer-led community association with a membership-elected board of directors. We aim to increase community membership and participation in the RSCA, as these are integral ways for individuals and businesses to make a positive impact on their community.
