“Starting Friday you can put-in at Kayak Pittsburgh’s newest location at Aspinwall Riverfront Park on the Allegheny River near the Highland Park Bridge. This will be the third location for Kayak Pittsburgh, a project of Venture Outdoors, and will be open Thursdays through Sundays in season. There are currently Kayak Pittsburgh locations on the North Shore under the 6th Street Bridge and in North Park.

From the new location, paddlers can glide past the Fox Chapel Yacht Club, around Sycamore Island, and view the Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority’s Beaux Arts water treatment plant. ‘We think this is a great opportunity for kayak rentals,’ says Joey-Linn Ulrich, executive director of Venture Outdoors. ‘It is a different perspective and view of the Allegheny River and the Pittsburgh skyline.'”
