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.
