Bold Paradise honors the bold vision of Riverlife's founders, who took a boat ride on the Gateway Clipper in August 1999 to survey the opportunities for Pittsburgh's riverfront renaissance. Their vision for a system of trails, interconnected riverfront parks, public open space and waterfront real estate development is what we celebrate today.
