Sandcastle Waterpark and Riverplex Picnic Area are located along the scenic shores of the Monongahela River, just a short drive from downtown Pittsburgh in the Waterfront Entertainment Complex. Sandcastle is the perfect place for your "Vacation in a Day"!
Groups can share a catered meal in the river view pavilions at Riverplex, where we offer a budget friendly get-together with the convenience-- and excitement-- of the waterpark right next door!
