How many cities can boast a State Park in the heart of downtown? Tiny, but beautiful, Point State Park commemorates and preserves the region's rich history, while also providing a beautiful, natural place to enjoy the outdoors and Pittsburgh's three rivers. The on-site Fort Pitt Museum & Block House, a two-floor, 12,000 square foot museum, tells the story of Western Pennsylvania's pivotal role during the French & Indian War, the American Revolution, and as the birthplace of Pittsburgh. Even if you only have time to pass through, the Three Rivers Heritage Trail connects the South Side and North Shore with downtown, offering a great outing for bikers, runners, and walkers. Next time you're in downtown Pittsburgh, take a few minutes out to visit Point State Park!
