Let’s create a world-class Pittsburgh riverfront experience that everyone can enjoy.

Riverlife is a nonprofit organization formed in 1999 to lead a community vision for the redevelopment of Pittsburgh’s downtown riverfronts. Over the past twenty years, we’ve worked with many partners to create the very best riverfront experience for Pittsburghers and our visitors: beautiful waterfront parks, public trails, greenways and open space, boat docks, recreational amenities and world-class design.

Pittsburgh’s riverfronts are the front door to the city.

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