Three Rivers Park

Three Rivers Park

Building Pittsburgh's riverfront park system

At Riverlife (formerly Riverlife Task Force), our mission is simple: Reclaim, restore and promote Pittsburgh’s riverfronts. Make them the environmental, recreational, cultural and economic hub for the people of this region and our visitors.
 

Our vision is Three Rivers Park. Pittsburgh’s grand, 13-mile continuous loop of riverfront parks and trails is almost 70% complete!

 

This huge urban waterfront park along the Allegheny, Monongahela and Ohio rivers in downtown Pittsburgh will provide a continuous link to exciting new park spaces, amenities and commercial destinations. See how it’s taking shape.

Connecting communities to the water

Ever since 1999, Riverlife has been thinking about strategies to reconnect people to the rivers.  We’ve learned valuable lessons and have created guidelines based on best practices for designing and developing riverfronts of all sizes. Here we have collected these resources for easy access and application across Southwestern Pennsylvania to launch conversations about the opportunities for improvements in the many river communities throughout the region.
