More Info

This popular annual event showcases Riverview Park, an urban oasis just north of Downtown Pittsburgh that is home to the landmark Allegheny Observatory as well as an extensive network of trails enjoyed by hikers, joggers and horseback riders alike.

During the Heritage Day celebration, explore nature by viewing rare birds from the National Aviary, meeting furry friends from the Animal Rescue League and Humane Society.

Stop by the Carnegie Science Center booth for a creative make and take activity: Balancing Robots! 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 and educational experiences for all ages.

Throughout the park grounds, children take on the challenge of bike rodeo, adults 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 - just a short walk from the Activities Building - are transformed into Fort Heritage! Children experience life on the American frontier by riding horses, painting totem poles, making trail mix, designing feather hair ties and much more.

New in 2014 is WHEELS ON PARADE!
Kids, bring your bikes and gather at 1pm on the Chapel Shelter lawn when costumed puppet figures, high-steppin' musical characters and neighborhood kids whell through the park grounds.

For more information call 412 - 255 - 2493.
