Friends of the Riverfront to host open house in Etna
Friends of the Riverfront will host an open house on Aug. 30 to showcase its new Etna headquarters.
The group which stewards the 25-mile Three Rivers Heritage Trail system moved to 12 Freeport Street in July from its former location along Preble Avenue in Pittsburgh’s Chateau neighborhood.
The open house will be 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Friends of the Riverfront volunteers will give tours of the new space and discuss initiatives for the coming year.
The move signifies a major step in the group’s effort to extend the Three Rivers Heritage trail through the Allegheny Valley, leaders said.
On June 21, a portion of the trail opened in Blawnox and a section is planned to pick up at the Etna Riverfront Park.
Etna Manager Mary Ellen Ramage said the group’s efforts align with the borough’s ongoing mission to build a park and trail along the Allegheny corridor to connect neighboring communities.
