We need your help to make the vision come alive.

Completing the Loop is a Riverlife-led initiative to link and enhance Pittsburgh’s riverfronts between the West End, Hot Metal, and 31st Street Bridges and beyond.

Launch our interactive online StoryMap to see our assessment of Pittsburgh’s riverfronts and learn about the “Completing the Loop” sections that matter to you. Over 3,600 people have experienced the StoryMap so far!

You’re helping Riverlife’s work to create thriving, world-class riverfronts that are essential to our region and belong to everyone.

Pittsburgh’s riverfronts have transformed over the past two decades with the generous support of local foundations and passionate Pittsburgh residents. We are grateful for your continued support – with your donation today, together we can complete the loop!

Funding for our Completing the Loop initiative was provided by the Henry L. Hillman Foundation, Riverlife, and the Environmental Stewardship Fund, a grant program of the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Bureau of Recreation and Conservation.
