Regent Square Street Map

A common question heard around the area is "What exactly is Regent Square, and what streets make up its boundaries"? Regent Square is not a municipal entity but rather a neighborhood that includes portions of the municipalities of Pittsburgh, Edgewood, Swissvale and Wilkinsburg.

This neighborhood is best defined by several streets and/or landmarks:

  • The length of South Braddock Avenue,and its business district, from Forbes to the Parkway East (I-376)
  • Frick Park on the west
  • Forbes Avenue (and eventually a jog onto Union Street) on the north
  • South Trenton Avenue on the east, and of course,
  • The Parkway East on the south.

Below is a detailed map of the streets within Regent Square, showing the various municipal boundaries. Note that within the Business District, the western side of Braddock Ave is part of Swissvale, while the eastern side of Braddock Ave is part of Edgewood.

More maps and a satellite image are available here

This map shows the approximate location of the municipal boundaries within the Regent Square neighborhood. To determine the exact municipality your home is in, search for your address in the Allegheny County Real Estate website.

For more detail of each quadrant, there are official planning maps online for

You can also view a topographic map of Regent Square, circa 1925. The map, which predates the Parkway East, shows Nine Mile Run as a mostly open stream flowing from Wilkinsburg along the eastern edge of Regent Square through Edgewood and into Frick Park. You can also see the original route of Braddock Ave, as it jogged slightly to the east as it crossed Nine Mile Run. Parts of this cobblestone road, with its streetcar rails still visible, can be seen today as you approach lower Frick Park near the former Center for Creative Play.
