“Typical city park - Amazing views!”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

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.

“Make it a point to stop here!”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

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.

“We went to see the duck!”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

We walked through the park to get to the Big Duck. The park is pretty and totally takes you out of the city. Wish we would have had more time to explore.

“See the duck!”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

We had the opportunity to see the Duck on its limited visit to Pittsburgh. If you go in the next couple of days he is a must see. However, even without him, the park is terrific filled with open spaces and beautiful pictures.

“Ducky time!”
Reviewed October 12, 2013 via mobile

This old world city has a gem on the water!

Point State Park is a great place on water where two rivers converge. Across the way you see Heinz Field and on the river lots of boats and kayakers. The huge, beautiful fountain is wonderful to sit beside and people watch. Seriously one of the best people watching spots ever with the giant rubber ducky floating for people to enjoy. (due to quack away later in Oxtiber 2013)

Tons of museums and restaurants nearby too.
