National Recreation Trails 2004 Photo Contest/3rivers-972.jpg

The North Shore section of the Three Rivers Heritage Trail segment of the Great Allegheny Passage National Recreation Trail on the north shore of the Allegheny River, just across from downtown and between the stadiums. This very popular public fountain cascades down to the edge of the trail, which is right beside the river. This is part of Pittsburgh's very successful redevelopment of the riverfronts as public recreational space. To the enormous credit of the Powers that Be, playing in the fountain is not forbidden (photo by Mary Shaw; all rights reserved).
