A Walk in the Park

Kittanning's Riverfront is a Special Place

By Anita Bowser

Whether you're solo or with friends, this beautiful park along the Allegheny River in Kittanning offers a respite for the soul. It's always a treat, but the blossoms and warm breezes of a waning spring make now an ideal time to enjoy this local treasure. Join us here for a pictorial stroll along the river's eastern shore.

The park is a colorful, fragrant place this time of year.

Picnic spots & benches, in sun or shade,

can be found north & south of the bridge.

Those who made history are remembered here.

And, right now, future history-makers are honored as well.

Lamp posts, gazebos & gardens are part of the park's quaint charm.

The park is ideal for birders, fishermen, & those who crave the natural world.

Wherever you are, take a little time to find a green spot or a wetland. Spring is almost over, so get out and enjoy it while you can.

Please consider sharing below any advice you might have for visitors of Riverfront Park.
