“Coolest walk to the game!”

Reviewed 20 July 2014

We've visited Pittsburgh twice and gone to Pirates games both times and the walk to the game was just the coolest part for me. I got a real kid-like kick out of the fact that the road is closed to cars and you can walk right down the middle of the bridge. This is a beautiful city and the walk across the bridge gives you some great views of it.

Fun and scenic way to get to the game. Even worth walking if there is no game in order to take in the views. Great atmosphere. Also it is a joy to look at from the stadium during a game. It's worth the walk.

If you park in Downtown Pittsburgh when attending a Pirates game, this is the bridge that takes you to the ballpark. It's closed to motor traffic before, during, and after games. There will be vendors from time to time on the downtown end of the bridge. Be sure to tip the sax man!!

I cross this bridge quite often whenever I go downtown in Pittsburgh and it is an interesting Cable Supported Suspension bridge. From a functionality standpoint, it is the major link between Downtown Pittsburgh and either the Stadium area or I-279 to get up north. The appearance of the bridge is reflective of Pittsburgh's city flag and sports colors in that it is the Yellow/Gold commonly associated with Pittsburgh. Walking across is not the most entirely enjoyable bridge experience I have had (I've walked the Brooklyn Bridge several times), it often seems dirtier on the Downtown side and is frequented by the homeless. It is an important bridge, it has a good appearance that is reflective of the area it is located in but it is far from the best bridge in the US one would cross.

Nice view of riverboats and fireworks shows. Pleasant walk from downtown parking, even on a hot day. Too many homeless beggars seeking change from passersby.
