Sheraden is the largest neighborhood in Pittsburgh's western region. It is surrounded by Windgap, Chartiers City, Crafton Heights, and Elliott.
Sheraden Park is the focus for most of this neighborhood's
recreational activities. Set in a wooded valley, the Park houses
a swimming pool, tennis courts, ballfields, basketball courts and
plenty of picnic and playground areas. Residents are also
proud of the library/community center and the renovated senior center
that also serve the neighborhood. Many houses in Sheraden
are known locally as "Pittsburgh Boxes," a cross between the wide,
Prairie-style homes of the midwest and the urban Victorians found
in the east. Translated into layman's terms, it means that you can
find a spacious, functional affordable home with amenities like
a large front porch and hardwood floors.
Youth are important to Sheraden's residents. Langley High School is attended by many of the neighborhood's teens. On a summer evening, the
bleachers are full at the local Little League games, while younger neighbors populate the community's many playgrounds and tot lots.
Service is available from Sheraden to downtown Pittsburgh or the Airport
via the Port Authority Transit West Busway.
