If you like history this is a must see. If you like to walk in a beautiful park don't miss Point State Park. In February the fountain is not on but it's still a unique place. It's history goes back to the late 1700's. It's not the easiest place to get to and only has one parking lot (paid), but... More

What a beautiful place to visit. Pack a lunch and take a blanket and just chill or go for a long walk in the park.

Visited Pittsburgh during July 4 and the place was alive with activities and events. A beautiful spot for any event or social activity in Pittsburgh.

Point State Park is Pittsburgh's welcome to visitors to the city and a year round place for city residents to find green open spaces, bike and walking paths, and enjoyable sitting places to relax, meditate, read a book, or people watch. For the holiday season they had a beautiful tree as center point while the fountain is off for the... More

We made a stop here in the summer and really enjoyed the fountain and the views of the city and river. Lots of boats to watch!

We traveled to Pittsburgh in June 2011 and walk through the park on our to Mt. Washington. At the time we walked through part of the park was under construction and the fountain wasn't in service. Hope to return one day.

The park is right on the water so it provided a different view of the city. We were there in December of 2016 so they had a large lighted tree up which was very pretty at night. It was a nice change to see some green in the city because there is not much green there!

This is place is so lively, you can do so many things at this place, you can either take a walk or sit just sit down and watch the sunset or you can watch the numerous boats, enjoy fishing or just sip beer from your hidden can. This was my favourite spot in the area and I went there every... More

We stopped by at Point State Park in the evening of 12/20. It's in downtown. We parked at the parking lot near by which was about $7. My kids love the big Christmas tree there. The view of the rivers are spectacular. While we're there, we noticed 3 trains all at once. We also saw Heinz Stadium and Carnegie Science... More
