Kayak Three Rivers

The three rivers of Pittsburgh unite the city into an urban and natural mecca, offering residents and visitors the opportunity to enjoy city life and outdoor adventure simultaneously.

Venture Outdoors, a non-profit founded in 2001, organizes outdoor recreational activities to spur community interest in the city's natural opportunities. Activities include hiking, biking, and kayaking, in addition to many other types of outdoor excitement.

A project of Venture Outdoors, Kayak Pittsburgh began in 2005 with a downtown station near the Pirates' PNC Park. It has since expanded to include stations at North Park and at Lake Elizabeth in West Park on the North Side.

This video spotlights Kayak Pittsburgh downtown, with photographs and conversation with Liam Cooney, Project Manager at Venture Outdoors.
