Pittsburgh is a city of bridges. No matter how you count them, there are hundreds of bridges spanning our many waterways, valleys, and ravines. Bridges also offer changing vistas on the natural and manmade features of the cityscape, giving us different perspectives on our physical environment as we cross them. In Pittsburgh, these works of artful engineering are also a source of pride.
Join us for this tour as we take a loop bounded by the Roberto Clemente and Andy Warhol Bridges and the north and south shores of the Allegheny River. Taking in sites ranging from the historically preserved Renaissance Pittsburgh Hotel to the recently opened Allegheny Overlook Pop-Up Park as well as the bridges and river, this tour reveals the dynamic relationship between humans and nature that characterizes much of Pittsburgh.
This is an in-person tour. Please read the important information regarding registration in light of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
To ensure participants’ safety, PHLF employs a radio audio system that transmits from the tour guide’s headset to earpieces worn by each tour participant. All units and lanyards are sanitized before and after each tour. Participants may use their own headsets or earbuds (with standard round jack), or PHLF will provide a disposable earpiece if needed.
We require that all persons wear a face mask fully covering the nose and mouth at all times during the tour. Participation in the tour is contingent on signing an acknowledgment and release, which, among other things, verifies the participant’s understanding that PHLF is unable to guarantee compliance with the foregoing Covid-19 recommendation.
Upon receiving your registration, we will email the acknowledgment and release; please sign and bring it to the tour.
