PNC Park is easily accessed by pedestrians via the Roberto Clemente Bridge, which is closed to vehicular traffic before and after games. The Gateway Clipper fleet shuttles fans from Station Square to the North Shore, and on-site parking is available.

Constructed of steel, stone and glass, PNC Park is adorned with mountain laurels, Pennsylvania's state flower, which are planted just beyond center field. The facility measures two-tiers in height, with a continuous lower grandstand. A 400-seat Field Club is located directly behind home plate. Sixty-nine suites are located on a separate level just above the lower grandstand, and 2,500 club seats overlook the facility's close-to-the-field second tier.

Fan amenities include party suites, glassed-in lounges, a picnic area and party decks, which also provide excellent views of the field and easy access for wheelchair patrons. The Budweiser Bowtie Bar, which opened for the 2012 season, is a new bar and lounge area. It overlooks right-field and has seven HD TVs and an expanded covered patio.
