Pittsburgh’s riverfronts are booming. With such rapid growth, how can our rivers support different needs for industry, housing, the environment, recreation and entertainment?

On Thursday, March 16, the City of Pittsburgh will host “Waterfronts That Work: Pittsburgh and Beyond,” from 6:00-8:00 pm at the Carnegie Science Center on the North Shore (map). Light snacks and refreshments begin at 5:30 pm.

Representatives from waterfront cities from across the U.S. will share the lessons they’ve learned from creating waterfronts that strive to work for everyone.
