The park is a nice place to relax on a sunny day after marveling at the city buildings. You can watch the "doggy boats" pass by and have a glimpse of the sports field across the river.

This is a must do in Pittsburgh! Relaxing walk and fantastic surrounding views! The fountain was so peaceful and it was fun watching the boats, trains, incline, and people passing by.

You had a great view of the 3 rivers and you can sit and relax under the trees. Fort Pitt Museum is on site. There is a fountain and restrooms.

This is one of my favorite parks, near my favorite hotel! Great place to visit, enjoy dipping your toes in the fountain. See the inclines, the stadiums, walk, bike, see the rivers, just relax.

The Fountain is the highlight of this park as is the harbor. Sitting on the edge of the fountain watching the boats, the yachts and the tour boats go by is just so peaceful.

The Hungry Detective got his steps walking at this Pittsburgh favorite spot. Wonderful place to walk and explore with up close views of the water and stadiums.

Make sure you look for the outlines of the two colonial forts that are set into the grass. A wonderful view of the city, great fountain also.

First off, parking is limited so be ready to walk a ways to get into the park and most parking is paid. We really enjoyed seeing all the stadiums and the fountain is a must see.

An easy walk from the parking lots, there's historical displays and park lawns. The fountain at the tip of the point is worth the visit. Police make their presence known so you feel ultra-safe walking around. We were here mid-day and it wasn't too crowded....More
