I walked here from downtown. You go under the bridge and emerge in the beautiful park area. The fountain was pretty and there were a lot of great photo opportunities.

Great area to walk around and take pictures. This park is beautiful with walkways, bike trails, sitting areas, and a great fountain. It also has great views of the city, rivers, and sports parks.

Point State Park is a lovely green space where 3 rivers join. The city skyline is really pretty as well as the sights along the rivers. The point is home to a very large fountain and walking trails alongside the river banks.

a beautiful park with a big fountain at the confluence of two rivers, Point State park is a good place for a walk or to begin a run up the Allegheny River.
