Lower Valley residents will have three chances this week to learn more about a potential park and trail along the Allegheny River shoreline.

The Allegheny River Trail Park is proposed to add 1.5 miles of trail toward the City of Pittsburgh and acres of green space to connect the public to the riverfront, according to Susan Crookston, executive director of Aspinwall Riverfront Park.

The land stretches between Aspinwall and Sharpsburg.

Designs will be presented at 1 p.m. Wednesday at the O’Hara municipal building, 325 Fox Chapel Road, 10 a.m. Thursday at the Aspinwall municipal building, 217 Commercial Ave. and 6:30 p.m. Thursday during the Sharpsburg council meeting, 1611 Main Street.

A public tour of the site will be given at 6 p.m. Wednesday. Anyone interested can meet at the former Silky’s Restaurant, 19th Street and River Road in Sharpsburg. The undeveloped construction site is not appropriate for children for people with physical challenges, Crookston said.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
