Sandcastle is another local favorite for us Pittsburghers! Whether you're planning a stay-cation, traveling through from out of town or simply looking for ways to cool off during the summer heat, Sandcastle is one of our favorite water destinations in the city. The location is amazing as it has been transformed from an old railroad yard, directly overlooking the Monongahela River. It's hard to believe you're in the middle of the city!
There are two kids specific kids areas with shallow pools, including Wet Willie's Waterworks and the Tad Pool.
But there are at least 4 areas with zero depth entry and life jackets are included for the wave pool. Man, my kids love the wave pool!
Sandcastle offers 15 attractions, the Mon Tsunami Wave Pool, scenic Mushroom Pool, the relaxing lazy river, and two children’s area – all located on a boardwalk that is sure to make you feel like you are on vacation. For thrill seekers to mild riders to those that just want to relax, there is something for everyone!
When you're ready just to hang out for a while, this unofficial "beach" offers some down time from the water fun!
