The South Shore Riverfront Park is located at the SouthSide Works in Pittsburgh’s South Side neighborhood serving as an important connection for the Great Allegheny Passage and Three Rivers Heritage Trail. The park includes riverfront trails, a piazza, concert stage, overlook, river landing and boat dock.

Formerly a steel mill barge dock, the park has been transformed embracing Pittsburgh’s riverfront property with access to newly renovated trails along the Monongahela River. Switchback terraces connect upper and lower plazas to create an exciting outdoor public space for recreation, relaxation and special events.

During special events at the South Shore Riverfront Park, guests enjoy dramatic riverfront views in a spectacular amphitheater, unlike any other outdoor venue in Pittsburgh. Located within the SouthSide Works vibrant entertainment complex, this newly renovated park can be transformed for an array of special events, fundraisers, weddings and more.

Get to know the Key Elements of South Shore Riverfront Park:

The Piazza:

The Piazza serves as the front door to the Park when entering from the SouthSide Works retail area located on Water Street adjacent to the Hofbräuhaus restaurant.

Event Stage

A large stage area with an overhead tensile structure and electrical hook ups is situated along the Upper Trail and is available for outdoor events.  The switchback and stairs between the Piazza and the Riverlanding creates an amphitheater atmosphere with seats available for guests.

River Trails:

The cycling and pedestrian trails through the Park are divided into upper and lower sections creating linear trail connections at both the water level and adjacent to the development providing uninterrupted trail access during events on the Event Stage.


The valley connecting the SouthSide Works development and the riverfront are connected by a landscaped switchback alternating sections of lawn and stairs that serve as spectator seating during events.


Passageways through a bulkhead wall along the river provide access to the waterfront. Seating, lighting and landscaped areas accompany tie-ups for large and small-motorized boats.
