Friends of the Riverfront, established in 1991, is a small, but mighty nonprofit that restores local riverfronts, transforming them from abandoned industrial wastelands into healthy and accessible public green space. Our organization engages volunteers and communities to develop and care for the Three Rivers Heritage Trail, a 33+ mile urban rail-trail, and the Three Rivers Water Trail along the riverfronts of the Allegheny, Ohio, and Monongahela rivers throughout Allegheny County.
Get out on the Trails and find a greater connection to your community, nature, family, and friends. Reap the health and wellness benefits of walking, riding, rolling, paddling, and relaxing along the Trails. Volunteer and get your hands dirty while also making our neighborhoods stronger. Be a friend of the riverfront!
