During the Heritage Day celebration on Saturday, June 11 from noon to 4 p.m. in Riverview Park, explore nature by viewing rare birds from the National Aviary, and meeting furry friends from the Animal Rescue League and Humane Society.

Stop by the Carnegie Science Center booth for a creative make and take activity. Check out a Bomb Squad robot and tour a SWAT vehicle as the Department of Public Safety’s SWAT, Police, and Fire divisions offer interactive, educational experiences for all ages.

Throughout the park grounds, children take on the challenge of games, while adults can receive advice from health professionals, and families tour the Observatory to name just a few of the day’s many activities. And everyone enjoys free refreshments!

The grounds of the Chapel Shelter—just a short walk from the Activities Building—are transformed into Fort Heritage! Children experience life on the American frontier by riding horses, painting totem poles, making trail mix, designing feather hair ties, and much more.

The “Bike Rodeo” and “Bike Bowling” return on the path just outside the Activities Building.  Venture Outdoors provides the bikes – kids provide the peddling!

For more information call 412-255-2493.
