Pittsburgh Riverfronts

North Shore Riverfront Park & Trail


Located on the northern bank of the Allegheny River and the headwaters of the Ohio River, the North Shore was created in the early 2000s during the construction of the Heinz Field and PNC Park. The North Shore is a waterfront gathering space that links together entertainment venues, restaurants, office buildings and cultural amenities with recreation and public green space.

Sports and Exhibition Authority of Allegheny County


As the largest public park project ever undertaken by the State of Pennsylvania, Riverlife needed to successfully partner with DCNR and others to renovate Point State Park as quickly and efficiently as possible, while maintaining a high standard of construction. Riverlife worked with dozens of stakeholders and partners; coordinated complex design, construction, and event schedules; and oversaw all aspects of the park’s restoration. Project partners included the administrations of Governor Tom Corbett and Governor Edward G. Rendell; Riverlife; Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources; and Allegheny Conference on Community Development.
