I live across the street so maybe I am biased but I love this park, especially now that the fountain is back (when its warm outside). Great for hanging out, going for a walk, or attending any of the concerts, fireworks or other shows that are going on here all summer long. Also has the Fort Pitt Museum and provides... More

Love to bike ride down here and just sit and read. It is nice in the summer to relax and watch the fountain. This summer it hosted an art exhibit of the duck. It is the site for many city events and a great park in the middle of the city.

We visited Point State Park on the last weekend that "The Duck" was in town. What's "The Duck?" Well if you have to ask, you missed some fun. Think of the little rubber ducks that kids play with in the bathtub...now blow it up about 1000 times! The Duck was a big attraction in Pittsburgh for a couple weeks during... More

I loved it! You can see downtown Pittsburgh and both of the inclines. The giant rubber duck was there as part of the International Arts Festival which was pretty cool. The fountain is working again and it was gorgeous. I loved the view of Heinz Field as well. Steeler nation baby!

We recently went to Point State Park since the renovations it looks gorgeous. The fountain looked great and I did not see any trash. Very clean. We also got to see the "duck" that's a plus. (:

Went there to walk close to the water and what a nice view at water level of the same sights seen from the Duquesne Incline. Tough to find using GPS but there were many others walking to the park so we found the way...definite must see if you like the waterfront

Visited this park to see the duck - 40 foot Rubber Duck to be exact. It was a temporary fixture at the park and cute. The waterfall is very nice and there are plently of places to sit and enjoy the scenery.

Went to Point State Park to see the giant rubber duck and enjoyed seeing the city from a variety of perspectives as well as walking the many ways around to the fountain, etc. it would have been a good place for a picnic, a family afternoon or a quiet conversation.
