Beautiful part of Pittsburgh; located at the point where all three rivers meet, and an excellent location for a quiet and peaceful walk.

This park is so lovely no matter what the weather. It's where two rivers meet and has a lovely view of Pittsburgh. There is a Christmas tree on display. There is also a fort to enter for a fee . If you can find parking up front you are lucky.

Cool park, though I think the Ohio River should probably be named either the Monongahela River or the Allegheny River. Great outline of the old fortress and great fountain.

Point state park had the perfect combination of history and nature. Perfect place to see the three rivers. Also might get a chance to see celebrities. Got to meet a super bowl winning football player. Fort Pitt block house was extremely cool and what a rich history.

This spot is magnificent. The rare three river merge is a sight to be seen. The fountain is the perfect landmark to mark this spot. Really a great walk and stroll...the rivers up close are beautiful and reading the plaques around the park are awesome

It's larger than it appears. Lots of open space and shady areas and, of course, the nice fountain at the point. Lots of great views from here. Also, it's just a 15 minute walk over to the Duquesne Incline. I walked over rode it up, walked along the fabulous Grand View Drive and rode the Monongehala Incline back down and... More

Such a beautiful place and fun facts/history. A good place to walk and sit outside to enjoy the beauty of Pittsburgh. Lots of locals riding bikes, running, boating, etc. Fun place to be immersed in the life of the city!

It is a wonderful way to spend a sunny Fall afternoon. We enjoyed the fountain and a walk around the park within view of both rivers. If you look South, you can see the Incline make its way up the hill covered by beautiful foliage.
