You help make Pittsburgh’s riverfronts cleaner, safer and more fun for everyone.

Riverlife is working with you to make Pittsburgh’s waterfronts great public destinations that we can all enjoy. We’re a nonprofit organization that collaborates with property owners, local government, and community groups to create new parks, trails, real estate development, and riverfront art and events. Our main focus is Pittsburgh, but we also work with waterfront towns and cities throughout the region.

Our riverfronts are the front door to our city.

Riverlife is here to help. What would you like to do on the rivers?

Featured Projects

South Shore Riverfront Park

South Shore Riverfront Park, a 3.4 acre park on the southern bank of the Monongahela River in Pittsburgh’s vibrant South Side neighborhood, opened to the public in 2012. The park serves as an important connection for the Great Allegheny Passage and Three Rivers Heritage Trail. Situated on the former site of the J&L Steel mill, the park not only offers a beautiful setting for recreation and relaxation, but also pays tribute to Pittsburgh’s steel manufacturing history.
