Went there on foot and by the Duck. Beautiful setting right at the point of the rivers across from Heinz Field and Mt. Washington. Simply a great place to sit and carry on a conversation with friends. A camera is a must.

We rode bikes through the park. It has a beautiful fountain in the center. There were many people walking around enjoying the weather and beautiful scenery. They were also setting up for an outdoor festival. It was a great location to bike and walk.

As parks go, it was average. There were stands to get a bite and buy some souvenirs. There is no parking or actual bathrooms (only port-o-johns - eek!)
