Boyce Park was dedicated as an Allegheny County park in 1963. It is named after the locally-born William D. Boyce, founder of the Boy Scouts.
As a result, all of the picnic groves and shelters have names with Boy Scout associations: Tenderfoot, Eagle, Den, etc. Excavations on the site in 1976 by anthropologists led the discovery of artifacts and 26 burial sites, suggesting that the Monongahela people occupied the site in the 14th century.
At over 1,000 acres, Boyce Park features a wide variety of recreational infrastructure, including a wave pool and the only downhill skiing facility in the County. Boyce’s trail system includes 28 miles of single-track and 1.4 miles of gravel roads. Boyce’s trails are enjoyed by riders of all skill level.
