Location

The Three Rivers Tibetan Cultural Center has moved to our new location:

7313 Florence Avenue Pittsburgh PA 15218

(at the corner of Florence Avenue and Wayne Street in Swissvale, a very short walk from the Swissvale Shopping Center)

We want to be good neighbors. Unless you are physically disabled, please do not park on the street by our center. Instead, please park in the metered parking lot on Monongahela Avenue by Denniston Street, or in the Swissvale Shopping Center on Church Street at Monongahela Ave. From either of these lots it is a short walk to our center.  Please feel welcome.
