Long known as Aspinwall Riverfront Park, this is a unique and innovative park abutting part of the Allegheny River focusing on water and how it shapes our lives.

What is now the cozy, bedroom community of Aspinwall (population about 3,000) began as farm land owned by the family of attorney and United States Senator James Ross (1761-1847).  As Pittsburgh’s steel industry grew, Henry Warner (1838-?) saw the area as ripe for development. Warner was, at that time, superintendent of the Allegheny County Workhouse, a prison that operated from 1869 to 1971. He purchased 155 acres from a Ross descendent named Annie Aspinwall (?-?). The town eventually took Aspinwall’s name.

As a learning environment, the park teaches about the ways water affects the landscape and human settlement. As an active play environment, it offers people of all ages a place to let loose and get moving. As a contemplative environment, it is a place to pause and let the natural beauty of this region’s river valleys and ridges inspire and relax. As a social environment, it will offer expansive recreation opportunities and areas for public events.
