National Recreation Trails 2004 Photo Contest/3rivers-421.jpg

Paddling Demo Day on the north shore of the Allegheny River-North Shore section of the Three Rivers Heritage Trail segment of the Great Allegheny Passage National Recreation Trail. As part of one of the riverfront festivals, local canoe and kayak clubs and dealers brought boats down to the river to give introductory lessons and give people a chance to try out the sport. This is part of Pittsburgh's very successful redevelopment of the riverfronts as public recreational space (photo by Mary Shaw; all rights reserved).
