Point State Park has a long, celebrated, and, at times, contentious history. The most visible landmark in Pittsburgh and the subject of countless photographs, it is a place of paramount importance to the history of the United States. Today, Point State Park is the city’s focal point for recreation, celebration, and enjoyment, the site of festivals, concerts, and regattas.
