“Fountain along the river near PNC Park & Hyatt North Shore”

Pittsburgh Water Steps
Ranked #51 of 200 things to do in Pittsburgh
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 5, 2015

This was a pleasant surprise along the river on our walk back from PNC Park to the Hyatt (which is right up the steps and across the street). Fun to walk around in to cool off! Definite photo opportunities! There were kids in bathing suits, barefoot adults, and even folks reading on the stone - definitely watch your step as it can be slippery.

This was something I wouldn't necessarily make a separate trip for, but something to see if you happen to be in the area.

The water steps are great for kids. You can dip your feet in the water, or jump your whole body in!

I also recommend the entire riverfront as a whole. Great breeze next to the water, lots of monuments and statues along the way (mostly war memorials). A peaceful, relaxing place.

These steps are so much fun! Just be careful on the stones! It's also beautiful to walk up and down the North Shore Trail and take in the sights of the River and the City.
