Mission Statement

Increased awareness and engagement with the Pittsburgh region’s rivers and riverfronts through activities, stewardship and expansion of water and land trails.

Description

For over a decade, Friends of the Riverfront has been on the ground and in the water, working to protect and restore our region’s priceless rivers and riverfronts. We are a pioneering organization that has been involved in creating nearly all of the trails you see as you bike, hike, rollerblade or paddle along our beautiful shores. Through intense collaboration with community partners, government officials, and diverse volunteer base, our rivers and riverfronts have been transformed from industrial wastelands to international examples of environmental renewal.

Friends of the Riverfront was incorporated on February 14th, 1991 to reclaim the city's riverfronts for public access and greenway/recreational use. Now, nearly 20 years later, Friends of the Riverfront is continuing to fulfill our mission. Read on about our history and plans for the future below.
