We visited the Water Steps one evening while in Pittsburg. It was very enjoyable and relaxing. I took my two year old and we climbed from top to bottom and back several times. The water was clear and clean. The area felt safe. I would...More
We spent the day at the science center which closes at 5 and we didn't want to go home during rush hour traffic. So we do decided to walk a half mile down the scenic north shore trail to the water steps.

Let me start with: The steps are NOT slippery. I have never seen any children get injured. Have you ever gotten wet on a water ride at an amusement park? Same kind of water. Let's all just calm down.

Really cool looking steps, however it turns into the kiddie pool of Pittsburgh once it reaches above 70 degrees. At this fine watering hole, I have seen many young yinzers splash and cut their heads on these sharp steps. Never have made contact with the...More

Street parking is the closest. If your are traveling with another adult you could drop them all off and then go park at the Rivers Casino for free. It is just a short walk along the bike trail from the Casino to the water steps. Kids are not allowed even in the Casino parking lot.
We only have one full day in Pittsburgh and one of our stops will be the Warhol Museum. I was also interested in seeing the water steps. We will have a 7 year old with us and wondering if it's worth it and how far of a walk is it from the Museum?

Totally worth it. If nothing else, the walk along the river is pretty (and if you play Pokemon Go, it's great hunting grounds :)). It's only about .5 miles between them. Walk to PNC Park and take the steps down to the Nortn Shore/ Three Rivers Heritage Trail. Warning- people often wear bathing suits there bc you can get really wet. You can just wade too and skip the suits.
