Point State Park Fountain

One of the many beautiful features of the Point State Park is the Soaring fountain with 200-ft.-wide basin, infinity waterfall  and  seats, at meeting point of three rivers.  When the fountain shoots up high, you will see it  from afar even you are just driving by the bridge.  We didn't see it though when we were there so it was a bit disappointing.

It was  hot when we went there at noontime but when you sit in front of the fountain, it cools you down.
A lot of people remove their  shoes and  soak their feet in the rim of the  fountain.
I think this is the  perfect location  for a water fountain because you can see the  river, the bridges, and the beautiful views in between the  rivers.
I wonder how  often they clean  the water because it was kind of murky or maybe it was the color of the concrete at the bottom that makes the water looks dark.  Nevertheless, it was really relaxing to just sit there for a while and  soak your feet or just  enjoy the sound of the water.
We saw many people getting their  sun tan too and some are  taking a nap even.
My son always  throw a coin and make a wish when he sees water fountain  and this  one is no different.
This is the very first state park  that I went to  that is located  in the city.  Most of the state parks are  far from the city so this is a really neat  place.
We would have stayed a little longer if we went there a little earlier when the  it wasn't too hot yet.

The  Heinz Field you see in the background  is located across the street where the Carnegie Science Center is.  We've been there a few years ago.  It is on the other side of the river and  is one of the four Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. 
My son  wants to  attend one of the  games of Steelers someday.  Hopefully  we can all  go and watch the Steelers although I am not a big fan of football but I would go just because the boys love football.
