Sheraden Community Council

 
 
  Sheraden is a neighborhood in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in the United States. It is the largest neighborhood in Pittsburgh's western region. It is surrounded by Windgap, Chartiers City (Pittsburgh), Crafton Heights, Esplen, and Elliott. Originally established as Sheraden Borough in 1889, it grew quickly and was annexed by the City of Pittsburgh in 1907. Shortly thereafter, the Public School Board of Pittsburgh opened numerous educational facilities around Sheraden, including Langley High School, completed in 1923, which replaced the former borough's Riverview High School. 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, outdoor basketball courts and picnic and playground areas. Residents take pride in their 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 Victorian homes found in the east. Sheraden offers a variety of activities for its residents including the Sheraden Community Council and Kiwanis Club of Sheraden, both active organizations working toward developing the community to its fullest potential. It also offers programs for youth such as Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, softball, baseball and football. The community has many churches of different denominations. The population is diverse. Housing is affordable and its proximity to downtown and the airport make it an ideal location. The Pittsburgh Bureau of Fire houses 31 Engine in Sheraden.



The Sheraden Community Council is held the 4th Tuesday of the Month at 7pm. The Sheraden Senior Center on Sherwood Ave is the location. See you there!!!
