We like to park in town and walk across the bridge to go to Pittsburgh Pirate games. It adds a little something to the experience of the ballpark and ballgame.
Going to PNC park or coming back into the downtown area, the Roberto Clemente Bridge is not only a study in architecture, and a great way to view the city at ground level, but is named for one of the Best Baseball players and humanitarians ever. What a great view of the park and the point.

Since this bridge crosses the Allegheny River to the Northside and is adjacent to PNC Park (home of the Pittsburgh Pirates) the name Roberto Clemente Bridge is a fitting tribute. Roberto Clemente was a... More
Its a nice bridge, and connects you to downtown, and makes for a nice photo opp with the pnc park behind it. A better bridge is the Smithfield bridge as it use to be the only bridge in burgh with lights. It has nice stone pillars and great backdrop with the inclines. RCB is nice with the blue lights, and...
