To the north of the Arlington community is the City League’s George K. Cupples Stadium. Recently refurbished by the Pittsburgh Board of Education, it is home to 10 area high school teams. Across the river and to the east is a fun facility called Forward Lanes, which offers Arlington residents a nostalgic look at bowling in Pittsburgh.
To the south of the neighborhood, following the bends of the Ohio River, is the Waterfront Town Center. It is popular with Arlington residents for shopping and is home to the local Bath & Body Works, Best Buy, and Men’s Wearhouse stores, which are only a few of 74 retailers available to shoppers. To the west, is the par-35, 2,906-yard Crafton Golf Course, opened to the public in 1923.
Like other Pittsburgh neighborhoods, Arlington has a comprehensive public transportation system that is coordinated between bus and light-rail trains and is operated by the Port Authority. Sidewalks through this neighborhood widen on commercial blocks and disappear in back alleyways. Bicycle traffic must merge with traveling vehicles on the narrow roadways, as only a few streets have bike lanes.
