about Point State Park:
Visitors can walk along paved promenades on the riverfront and to overlooks for dramatic views of Pittsburgh. Natural landscaping and a 150-foot tall fountain enhance the beauty of the park. A stepped wall or stone bleacher along the Allegheny River section of the park provides seating for outdoor events. A bike and in-line skate route through Point State Park connects the North Shore Trail, the South Side Trail, and the Eliza Furnace Trail via bicycle routes through the city of Pittsburgh.
The Fort Pitt Museum, the Fort Pitt Blockhouse, and many plaques interpret the history and significance of the area.
The park's main entrance, riverfront wharf walkway, restrooms, numerous parking spaces, and water fountains are wheelchair accessible.
