Pittsburgh Riverfronts

Allegheny Landing

 

Situated between the 6th and 7th Street bridges on the north bank of the Allegheny River next to PNC Park, Allegheny Landing was dedicated in 1984 as one of Pittsburgh’s first modern riverfront parks and one the nation’s first urban riverfront sculpture parks. It was established in recognition of Pittsburgh’s riverfront potential for recreation and incorporating arts within the urban landscape and has since become a well-used node of Pittsburgh’s riverfront trail system.
