Enjoy a day of adventure and exploration at Riverview Park Heritage Day! This popular, annual event showcases Riverview Park, an urban oasis that is home to the Allegheny Observatory landmark, as well as an extensive network of trails enjoyed by hikers, joggers, and horseback riders alike.
During the Heritage Day celebration, your family can explore nature by viewing rare birds from the National Aviary, and meeting furry friends from the Animal Rescue League and Humane Society. Be sure to stop by the Carnegie Science Center booth for a creative make-and-take activity. Check out a Bomb Squad robot and tour a SWAT vehicle as the Department of Public Safety‘s SWAT, Police, and Fire divisions offer interactive, educational experiences for all ages.
Throughout the park grounds, children take on the challenge of games, while adults can receive advice from health professionals, and families tour the Observatory to name just a few of the day’s many activities. And everyone enjoys free refreshments! The grounds of the Chapel Shelter will be transformed into Fort Heritage where children can experience life on the American frontier by riding horses, painting totem poles, making trail mix, designing feather hair ties, and much more.
Riverview Park Heritage Day will be held on Saturday, June 11 from 12:00 until 4:00 pm. For more information about Heritage Day and related events, visit the Citiparks Riverview Park Heritage Day event page, or call 412-255-2493.
