The “first of many” RP Days brought cyclists, spectators and fans of Riverview Park together to honor the park’s history and celebrate what’s to come.

The first-ever RP Day took place on Saturday, September 8, in Riverview Park. In addition to the first sanctioned cyclocross race in a city park, RP Day festivities included hikes led by representatives from the Western Pennsylvania Mushroom Club and the Allegheny City Society, free food provided by the Five Points Business District and games for kids and adults. The goal of the free event was to celebrate and bring more attention and investment to Riverview Park.
