The North Shore Riverfront Park Maintenance Fund
Thank you for your interest in donating to the North Shore Riverfront Park Maintenance Fund!
The Park is a beautiful 11.25-acre setting along the Allegheny River that provides many amenities for residents, visitors, and recreational boaters. Situated between Heinz Field and PNC Park, it is home to the Great Lawn, Esplanade, Riverwalk, Market Street Pier, Water Steps & Canal Square as well as public art and memorials.
DID YOU KNOW over 600,000 people attended the Park in 2012!
Thousands of people enjoy the Park each year with activities such as walking, jogging, biking, fishing, kayaking, special events, and dining at fine restaurants. The park also holds dozens of events each year, such as regattas, walk/runs, triathlons, and much more!
It takes great effort and coordination to keep the Park properly maintained year-round. Unfortunately, the Authority does not have a dedicated revenue source to meet ongoing costs. Only around 30% of the park maintenance budget is covered by existing special event fees and donations. In addition, unforeseen events such as floods can overwhelm the budget. To close the funding gap, the Authority has launched a region-wide campaign to invite all users of the Park to contribute to the maintenance fund.
