Amazing park
Oct 2021 • Couples
This park is absolutely beautiful & it was a great place to get a feel for the city without feeling like you’re in the city.
No trouble parking even on a busy Saturday.

Located at the meeting point of two rivers that become the Ohio river, it is a beautiful park with a nice fountain. The view of the stadium across the river is nice. The walkway along the river starts from there. Nice way to get to downtown locations. Great to visit both during daylight and nigh time. Appears pretty safe even at night. Saw lone female joggers in the river walk.

3 Rivers, Bridges & Views
Sep 2021 • Couples
This is the point of con fluence where the Ohio, Allegheny and Monongahela Rivers converge. Here there is an amphitheater, huge fountain, forts and seating. From here we had views are Heinz Field, the incline and the city. A promenade went around the park and we watched runners, bikers and walkers pass by. From here it’s easy to see why Pittsburgh is call the City of Bridges

Worth a visit
May 2021
Walked around the park with a coffee on my last trip to Pittsburgh, and I'm so glad I did. It's a really pretty area. It offers really good views of both Heinz Field and PNC Park across the water. The fountain is cool too. Parking can be a bit tricky, but it's still worth a visit.

Nice location
Jul 2021
There's lots of history in this spot, but you can also enjoy it for the lovely fountain and the view of the two rivers joining to form the third river. It's a large park and free to enter, but if you are driving here, then be aware that the parking lot is $10. There is a museum on the grounds that costs $8/ person but you can see the historic blockhouse and site of Fort Dusquene without museum admission. It's also a nice spot for a picnic or a game of frisbee.

Great park and fountain at three rivers junction
Jul 2021
The park is a beautiful piece of land that is great for walks, picnics, people watching, enjoying the river views and taking the great water fountain at the nexus of the three rivers.

Just a nice place to relax in the big city if you can find parking. You get a great view from the Duquesne Incline.

Cute park/no parking
Apr 2021 • Solo
My only complaint off the bat is very limited parking nearby and you have to pay. But if you’re staying close by, a nice place to walk your dog or take some nice photos in front of the bridge.

Point State Park is always great but they need to keep people off the grass when the winter comes. It was a puddle last night. But it is still a nice place to be.

It's a pretty view, but not much history here. There is a museum onsite. If it's a hot day, I'd definitely go here if I needed to cool off. Otherwise it's just a place to have a quick visit.
