About the Organization
Founded in 1991, Friends of the Riverfront works to reclaim and restore the Pittsburgh region’s riverfronts for public use. We maintain, promote, and improve the 24-mile Three Rivers Heritage Trail and 18 Three Rivers Water Trail river access points. We build and expand these trail systems through collaboration with community partners, government officials, and a diverse volunteer base. Together, we have transformed our rivers and riverfronts from industrial wastelands to internationally recognized examples of environmental renewal.
