On June 22, Riverlife invited the community to envision what could happen on the riverfront in Pittsburgh’s Strip District. Over 400 people dropped by our pop-up “Riverfront Refresh” event right on the trail at the dog park at 25th & Railroad streets.
Attendees enjoyed food trucks, cold drinks from Kingfly Spirits and Red Ribbon Soda, a great mix by DJ Dan Flescher, river views and more! Riverlife continues to work towards the vision of a riverfront park in the Strip District as outlined in our 2015 plan in collaboration with property owners and developers in the neighborhood. We collected feedback from the community to present to those stakeholders as riverfront development moves forward in the neighborhood.
Read about the event in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: “Uninterrupted trail access is a must, Strip District residents say. A nightclub might be nice, too”
